Rainier Valley

Habitat for Humanity is involved in many neighborhoods throughout Seattle including Westway, White Center, Renton, and Rainier Valley. Our big push for 2017 is to partner the most with organizations in the Rainier Valley. This neighborhood has a very rich history of culture, with over 50 languages spoken in the neighborhood, and is touted to be America’s most diverse neighborhood according to the Census bureau. This rich culture is at risk of displacement. Thankfully we know how to fight against that displacement: help people stay in their homes.
