Community Development

HomeSight Community Development believes in an integrated approach to creating thriving communities. We serve communities of color and SE Seattle residents who reside in areas which have low access to opportunity. Opportunities are created through listening to the community’s needs, providing necessary technical assistance and resources, and advocating for these stated needs. Through these efforts, we look to build shared prosperity within these communities and prevent/alleviate inequitable and isolating development.
