About Us

Everyone has the right to a quality, affordable home. At Capitol Hill Housing, this truth drives our work. By embracing community-led development and engaging in deep-rooted partnerships, we’re fostering vibrant, equitable communities where everyone has access to safe, affordable and welcoming homes. We employ anti-racist tactics to dismantle systemic barriers and support socially just, culturally rich, and environmentally sustainable communities throughout our region. Our work began in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle and, as our region transformed, our partnerships have expanded to include communities in the Central District, White Center, and Lake City. Today, with 47 apartment buildings, we continue our commitment to build community with and for people.

Capitol Hill Housing is a public corporation organized by the City of Seattle pursuant to state and municipal law. As such, it is a political subdivision of the State.
