Our beautiful, custom-designed Fora Health building is now one year old!
The dream for this building began when we were still operating in our downtown location – an old 1900s converted hotel. We dreamed of a space that would be a beacon of hope to those entering their recovery journey.
Our goal was to design a trauma-informed building that would facilitate patients’ engagement with treatment, nature, and each other in purpose-built indoor and outdoor therapeutic spaces. Those who worked at the downtown location can share the stark contrasts to this new building, such as narrow hallways to brightly lit ADA-compliant spaces. We are so grateful to be here!
One of the many new amenities (gym, therapy garden, etc.) is our art studio featuring large windows and skylights – positively featured in this Portland Business Journal article. In the past, Fora occasionally offered art therapy classes, but can now have it regularly. It’s a great outlet for patients as they explore their creativity in a positive, non-judgmental space.
We appreciate all the people who helped make this space possible! We celebrate the first successful year in this building. Here’s to many more years!
