Southeast Economic Opportunity Center

The Southeast Economic Opportunity Center (SEOC) will be a culturally relevant and welcoming place where people in Southeast Seattle and beyond can access opportunities for higher education, good paying jobs, and support to start and keep a business. Integrating shared space for cultural organizations and workforce housing will help stabilize communities at risk of displacement and engage diverse residents.

The Opportunity Center will include the following core elements:

  • Postsecondary education connected to job skill development
  • Small business assistance and entrepreneurship center
  • Employment services
  • Affordable commercial space for neighborhood businesses and cultural organizations to stabilize services to the diverse residents of South Seattle
  • Affordable market rate rental and low-income ownership housing, to balance market rate and very low income projects already funded at Othello

We're re-naming the SEOC project, will you help pick the final name? Take our survey by 11:59 p.m. on January 19, 2018, to make your voice heard on what you think we should call this community-driven economic development project!
