Mission Statement

Capitol Hill Housing meets the need for affordable housing and preserves neighborhood character in Seattle.

Description

ABOUT CAPITOL HILL HOUSING: Capitol Hill Housing provides affordable housing and leads community development efforts-- helping families, immigrants and the recently homeless. Based in Capitol Hill, we have properties in nine Seattle neighborhoods. Since 1976, we have served low and moderate income residents and worked to improve the Capitol Hill neighborhood for all.

CHH helps people of limited means have a home. We provide a secure, affordable home to more than 1,600 people each night, including hundreds of children. We place a special focus on affordable housing for families. In neighborhoods where two and three bedroom homes are rare, CHH works to develop new large apartments.

Our Community Development work focuses on transit oriented development, preservation of historic buildings, creating walkable neighborhood, running the 12 th Avenue Initiative and supporting a thriving commerical district on Capitol Hill. We strive to impact specific households we serve as well as the entire community.

CHH currently owns and operates 42 buildings across Seattle, including historic Seattle apartments and new, award-winning projects. We are proud to develop buildings in a community context and provide affordable homes that strengthen the neighborhoods we live in.
