Habitat for Humanity to develop affordable housing for senior citizens, families in Olympia

From KCPQ-13 TV, Seattle, April 11, 2022:

Senior citizens are facing a housing shortage—what some researchers are calling a quiet, or invisible crisis.  Over the next decade, the number of elderly homeless Americans is projected to triple, and that was before COVID-19 hit. 

The City of Olympia owns 10 acres of land on 3900 Boulevard Road and wants to use it to address housing gaps in affordability, stability and variety for senior citizens and families. The city chose South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity to help fulfill the growing housing need in the region.

“Homeownership is an opportunity to leave a legacy,” said Carly Colgan, CEO of South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity. “For seniors, this is an opportunity that for them to own something to pass into their children for future generations.”

The non-profit serves people who make 30 % to 80% of the area’s median income.
