Supportive Housing Program

Supportive Housing is designed to support domestic violence/sexual assault survivors obtain and maintain safe, stable, and temporary (up to 2 years) housing.  Our advocates will work with the families to determine long-term housing arrangements, financial empowerment, maintaining housing stability, legal resources, community resources and provide services with our children’s program. 

ADWAS’ A Place of Our Own supportive housing program features 19 individual units of supportive housing for low income families who are homeless. All units are subsidized by project-based Section 8 through the Seattle Housing Authority. Qualified applicants will meet an income limit of 30% median income plus other SHA requirements. In addition, all units are part of the Washington State Housing Finance Commission Tax Credit program.

We are located in the lovely, residential Maple Leaf neighborhood on the I-5 corridor north of the University District.

If you know someone who wants to apply for Supportive Housing, please contact Kellie Shapard, Property Manager, kellie@adwas.org.
