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
