KING 5: Habitat for Humanity constructing condominiums for low-income Seattle residents

In a city known for its vibrant culture and thriving economy, the rising cost of housing has become a significant challenge for many families. Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, in particular, has witnessed an increase in housing prices, making it difficult for low-income families to find decent and stable homes. Habitat for Humanity recognized this pressing issue and stepped up to create a sustainable solution.

“This is amazing. I don’t even know how I deserve this. But the truth is, I do deserve this. And everybody deserves this.”

At Habitat for Humanity, our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. With this goal in mind, we embarked on an ambitious project to build an affordable condo building in the heart of Capitol Hill. This endeavor aligns perfectly with our mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Located at a prime spot in Capitol Hill, Olympic Ridge is a testament to the dedication and collaboration of our volunteers, donors, and partners. The building will feature a modern and eco-friendly design, with a focus on maximizing space while maintaining a sense of community. With multiple units, each family will have a safe and comfortable place to call home, complete with all the amenities necessary for a high-quality life.

Habitat for Humanity’s mission is made possible through the support of generous donors and partners. Local businesses, corporations, and individuals have joined hands with us to provide financial contributions, building materials, and valuable resources. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who believe in our cause and have made this project a possibility.

The completion of this affordable condo building will create a lasting impact on the lives of the families it will serve. Affordable housing not only provides shelter but also empowers families to break the cycle of poverty and create a brighter future for their children. With a stable and secure home, these families will have the opportunity to thrive and become active contributors to the community they call home.

As the construction progresses, we eagerly anticipate the day when we can hand over the keys to the deserving families who will call this condo building their home. Our work doesn’t stop here, though. Habitat for Humanity remains committed to addressing the affordable housing crisis and will continue to build, renovate, and repair homes for families in need throughout Seattle-King and Kittitas Counties.

You too can be a part of this transformative journey. Whether you contribute financially, volunteer your time, or spread the word about our cause, your support can change lives and make a positive impact on the community. Together, we can build dreams and homes for those in need.
