7.1.2015: A key milepost in an exciting journey -- today, Living Cully (via Living Cully Plaza LLC, a limited liability company comprising Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East, Hacienda CDC, and Verde) took ownership of the Sugar Shack.

This kind of great result doesn't happen without important contributions from many, many organizations and individuals, including the Living Cully Partners, Craft3, the Portland Development Commission, Oregon Community Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, the many contributors to Living Cully's first crowdfunding campaign, and numerous other critical participants.

A special shout out to Tony DeFalco, Living Cully Coordinator, who did tremendous and tireless work from the moment the for sale sign appeared on the building, pushing that mythical rock up the hill until he actually reached the top.

Major federal grant for Cully Park...!! PDF Print E-mail

4.21.2015: Great news, and another welcome and humbling payoff for hard work by many, many people and organizations.

Today, we are pleased to share that we have secured a $500,000 federal grant to develop Cully Park. These funds will support development of the soccer field, and are being provided by the National Parks Service's National Land and Water Conservation Fund Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership Program. Cully Park is 1 of only 10 awards in the nation, and 1 of only 2 to receive the maximum grant amount, a recognition of the power of our community-based model for Park development.

It is important to express our great thanks to Portland Parks & Recreation and to the State of Oregon Parks & Recreation Department. Nonprofits, like Verde, cannot apply for these grants -- Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership grants are available only to state and local government agencies as well as to certain federally-recognized Indian tribes. So, please join us in thanking the City and the State for pursuing these funds for Cully Park, and for their continuing partnership and unwavering support.
