|Hillsboro Neighborhoods Coalition||
Who We are:
The Hillsboro Neighborhoods Coalition is comprised of the 3rd Ave Neighborhood Watch, Main Street Neighbors, Heart of Hillsboro Neighborhood and Jackson School Homeowners Association. The HNC advocates for and promotes livability on behalf of the member neighborhoods.
History of the Coalition:
In July 2010 a resident of the Luke-Dorf Complex on 5th and Washington sexually assaulted a child and raped a 21 year-old woman. The complex houses and treats severely and persistently mentally ill individuals with a history of homelessness, addictions and a significant percentage of the population is on parole or probation.
These tragic events prompted our neighborhoods to hold two public meetings in an effort to better understand the oversight and licensing of the 25 bed Luke-Dorf residential treatment complex. The neighborhoods were surprised to learn that the facility is unlicensed and unregulated.
The Hillsboro Neighborhoods Coalition was formed as an Oregon registered non-profit organization to address this issue and other livability issues as they may arise.

Oversight: We are currently working towards establishment of appropriate oversight and regulation of some supportive housing developments. Oversight and regulation help ensure quality care for the clients and peace of mind for the community.
In our ongoing research of mental health and addiction services we have learned the Luke-Dorf facility is not an aberration but is indicative of a state-wide systemic failure to appropriately regulate these facilities. This revelation has prompted the HNC to seek solutions at the state level as well as with Washington County and the city of Hillsboro.
To this end we have:
