Brettler Family Place

Seattle, WA Affordable Housing

These 52 units of affordable housing in one of Seattle’s most desirable neighborhoods are a proud accomplishment of local developers Solid Ground and Common Ground and NDC Corporate Equitey Fund. Bordering Magnuson Park and overlooking beautiful Lake Washington, Brettler Family Place is now home to 52 families coming out of emergency and transitional shelters. Community facilities provide space for recreation, cultural and educational activities for Brettler’s children and adults.

Brettler Family Place is located in the Sand Point neighborhood of Seattle. The $14.3 million project of the Seattle non-profit Solid Ground received $5.5 million in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) financing from NDC Corporate Equity Fund. The units have between two and four bedrooms, and are designated for formerly homeless families below 30% AMI with tenants paying no more than 30% of their income. The area is adjacent to a major public park on Lake Washington with access to public transit on Sand Point Way, the closest street to the lake.

Families receive onsite supportive case management services, resources and referrals. Classes are offered for both children and adults focusing on employment, increasing education, and English language skills, parenting and financial fitness.
