The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) in partnership with the City of Seattle will be opening a new tiny house village at 1000 NE 45th Street providing shelter and case management for up to 65 people. The City has identified this property, owned by Sound Transit, as suitable for a tiny house village. The City’s outreach team will offer places in the village to single adult women, men, couples, and people with pets who are currently living unsheltered outside. On-site services will be available to help villagers secure permanent housing. LIHI will develop and operate the village.
The village will include:
– 24-hour on-site staffing
– Code of conduct villagers abide by
– Common kitchen, bathrooms & showers
– Hot meals delivered daily
– On-site wrap-around services including case management, housing search support, employment and health resources
– Community Advisory Committee
Community Advisory Committee: A Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is forming to oversee the progress of the village, check in on operations and resident services, address any topics of interest to the surrounding neighbors, and provide advisory input. The CAC is comprised of community stakeholders such as neighbors, community and faith leaders, local businesses, service providers, and others. The CAC will meet monthly for about an hour to an hour and a half, and virtually at this time.
If you wish to apply to be a member of the CAC, please email Josh Castle at email@example.com.
Community Meeting: Recording coming soon! The community meeting on April 15th was attended by City of Seattle staff, Councilmember Alex Pedersen, Sound Transit staff, LIHI, and community members.
