Healthy community development, both at a building scale and a neighborhood scale, is one of the primary objectives of our work. Now more than ever, we are proud to stand with our affordable housing partners to create viable, healthy communities. Join us in supporting our partners during this critical time.
Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC)
DESC provides integrated services including housing, emergency shelter, crisis intervention and healthcare to thousands of homeless and formerly homeless people every day. They fight for public resources and policies that serve our most vulnerable and marginalized neighbors: those living with mental illness, substance use disorders, and other disabilities.
Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI)
LIHI provides a range of affordable housing services for the benefit of low-income, homeless and formerly homeless people in Washington State. Founded in 1991, LIHI has grown to be one of the most productive affordable housing developers in the Northwest, owning and/or managing more than 2,200 housing units at 60 sites in six counties throughout the Puget Sound.

Mercy Housing Northwest
Mercy Housing Northwest owns and operates 54 properties throughout Washington and Idaho, providing more than 5,000 families and seniors a place to call home at below-market rent. Beyond housing, Mercy Housing Northwest provides onsite resident services that focus on five key program areas: housing stability, health and wellness, community engagement, education and financial well-being. When combined with the stability, security, and pride of having a place to call home, these services help Mercy Housing Northwest residents work toward self-sufficiency and break the cycle of poverty.
