Adult Supportive Housing
Plymouth Housing Group transforms lives by providing permanent, supportive homes to homeless people with few other options for housing.
Since 1980, we’ve been providing homes to the most challenged homeless adults in our community.
Today, over 1,000 formerly-homeless adults live in 13 Plymouth residential apartment buildings in the downtown Seattle area. Another 600 have found a home in Seattle/King County through Plymouth’s Shelter Plus Care Program (a federal housing program Plymouth administers for King County).
At the heart of Plymouth’s approach is the “Housing First” philosophy, a philosophy that has proven successful across the country. Without a stable home, homeless people cannot access the assistance they need to address their problems. Lack of a stable home exacerbates chronic medical and mental health conditions, making it very difficult to improve one’s life.
At Plymouth, we work hard to lower the barriers to housing so that people who are shut out of housing have an opportunity to succeed. Our model of permanent housing, coupled with “wrap around” supportive services, helps people rebuild their lives, regain their dignity, and leave homelessness behind forever.
