Elizabeth Family Homes
In the midst of a citywide affordable housing crisis, Catholic Housing Services and Equity Alliance of Washington, in partnership with the Rainier Beach Action Coalition (RBAC) seek to develop the community-oriented Elizabeth Thomas Homes Project in Rainier Beach. The project includes affordable housing and commercial space. Research shows that Black families and other families of Color who qualify for affordable housing are larger than the county average, and particularly larger than white households who qualify for affordable housing.
Elizabeth Thomas Homes will deliver much needed housing to working families at high risk of displacement from Seattle, addressing the “missing middle” population, or those left with few housing options. Elizabeth Thomas Homes will include 119 units of family housing in Rainier Beach, South Seattle.
