purpose & values
Founded in 1976 as an outgrowth of community action, CHH currently owns and operates 44 buildings, providing safe and affordable housing to low- and moderate-income individuals and families in Capitol Hill and nine other Seattle area neighborhoods.
Capitol Hill Housing has functioned as the Community Development Corporation on Capitol Hill since its founding. We are committed to creating equitable and sustainable communities in central Seattle. CHH is leading community stakeholders in building a vision of development for generations to come, prioritizing outstanding architecture, pedestrian-oriented amenities, affordable housing, commercial opportunities, and space for arts and culture.
We envision a diverse community that includes housing for individuals and families across a broad range of incomes. We are proud to develop buildings in a community context and provide affordable homes that strengthen the neighborhoods we live in.
We believe in each person's right to a safe, affordable, quality home. We act with integrity in our lives and with passion for our work. We cultivate a strong team that leads through a commitment to excellence. We are responsible stewards of our properties, communities and environment. We are caring and respectful of all residents, staff, community partners, and neighbors.
"Capitol Hill Housing is a trusted partner and leader in Seattle." -M.A. Leonard, Vice President, Pacific Northwest Market, Enterprise Community Partners
