In order for the Seattle / King County region to fully tackle our homelessness crisis, we must increase our affordable housing stock. Development of additional housing takes time and substantial resources; but individuals need homes today. We believe landlords and property owners are a critical part of tackling homelessness, as they have access to inventory that can get people housed quickly and provide stability for individuals and families.
Housing Connector makes it easy for Property Owners to be a valued partner in tackling our region’s homelessness crisis by providing financial support and risk mitigation to insure against losses. In turn property owners will open doors that were previously out of reach for individuals experiencing homelessness.
