About CHH

Capitol Hill Housing provides affordable housing and leads community development efforts – helping families, immigrants and the recently homeless. Based in Capitol Hill, we have properties in nine Seattle neighborhoods. Since 1976, we have served low and moderate income residents and worked to improve the Capitol Hill neighborhood for all.

CHH helps people of limited means have a home. We provide a secure, affordable home to more than 1,700 people each night, including hundreds of children. We place a special focus on affordable housing for families. In neighborhoods where two and three bedroom homes are rare, CHH works to develop new large apartments.

Many CHH residents come from a situation of poverty. Our residents include single parents and their children, senior citizens bankrupted by medical bills, and refugee families escaping political strife. Living in a CHH apartment allows them to afford other necessities such as food, transportation and healthcare. Hundreds of our neighbors across the city have an affordable home because of Capitol Hill Housing.

Our community development work focuses on creating equitable and sustainable communities through thriving commercial districts, walkable neighborhoods, and building preservation. We strive to impact specific households we serve as well as the entire community.

CHH currently owns and operates 43 buildings across Seattle, including historic Seattle apartments and new, award-winning projects. We are proud to develop buildings in a community context and provide affordable homes that strengthen the neighborhoods we live in.

  1. Have lived in Seattle Housing for 25 years (Denny Terrace) Recent events worry me, desire to move! Any info will be appreciated!

  2. Hello to David Dologite,
    You got it almost right…I am a native of St Louis, but MWA does have an office in Portland, doing a range of work for non-profits including Home Forward, NW Housing Alternatives, etc.

    And yes! I did go to a guitar camp for a week in France. I’ll tell you about it when we talk.
    Congratulations on landing at a great place in CHH.
