This site is dedicated to Delta's June Key Delta Community Center Project Director, Chris Poole-Jones.

JUNE KEY DELTA COMMUNITY CENTER, dedicated to the energy and foresight of Portland, Oregon educator June Key, is a Living Building, a "green" building project developed by African American women, Portland sorority members of the Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, that will provide a community center that sustains the needs of the multi-cultural neighborhood it serves, encouraging sound and healthy social, educational, artistic, economic, and environmental development and awareness.  

 

The property on which the completed community center, June Key Delta Community Center, stands is owned (without debt) by Portland Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Piedmont Rose Connection, Inc.  The site is  a renovation of a standard 1960's style concrete and metal building gas station with asphalt pavement (see photo, above left) and will serve as a demonstration project highlighting how a small, nonprofit organization uses sustainable building practices to create a "living building."

The Delta organization's service activities (including education, physical/mental health, economic development and international development)  could not be accomodated in the former building (pictured top, left, above) for lack of space, city fire bureau regulations, and the general deterioration of the building.  In researching ways to renovate or remodel the site, the Delta organizaton, wishing to accomplish this task in a responsible manner, chose to create a "living building" (highest level of sustainable building).  Note that this site is constantly "under construction" and some information may change as the project progresses.
