About the Project
Opened in mid December 2015, Thomas Heights was named in honor of Thomas Ptacek, a veteran and advocate for people experiencing homelessness. Thomas Ptacek, who became homeless for a time after serving in the U.S. Navy, has been a strong advocate for veterans and affordable housing in Portland for years.
Located on a bus-route at the base of Munjoy Hill, Thomas Heights’s 18 households will enjoy views of Back Cove, as well as easy access to services, shops, restaurants and Portland’s Old Port.
