TY to the YWCA
Thank you to our member, YWCA of Seattle, King, Snohomish. In benefitting from the Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program, YWCA has extended its support to HDC in the effort of ensuring that women and families from across the region have safe, healthy, and affordable homes.
YWCA project, Opportunity Place, is unique to the qualifying developments in that it already serves hundreds of folks in the downtown area. The YWCA’s Opportunity Place opened in 2003 and offers a variety of programs that include Health Access and Economic Empowerment. Programs include Veterans Employment, WorkFirst for TANF Parents, Healthcare Access, Title V Employment, and permanent affordable housing among many others.
