Our Resident Services Program is a team of devoted staff members who provide services to all residents living in our apartments. By coupling housing with services, residents have stable homes and additional support in solving problems and achieving their goals.
Our apartments are a strong foundation for our residents to grow, stabilize, rebuild, and thrive. An apartment is one piece of a good life. They need other benefits and services to be stable, healthy, and thriving. We are here to help.
Our program secured over $1.2 million in rent relief for residents who lost income due to COVID-19. We delivered over 10,000 meals to residents with barriers to access healthy food during the pandemic. We hired three women-owned catering businesses that had lost business during the pandemic to work on these efforts.
Our Resident Services Team offers support and referrals. They also host community events at every Bellwether building. The Resident Services program is free and confidential for all Bellwether Housing residents.
Our Resident Services Coordinators are friendly, supportive people that can help you navigate challenges and build community.
Our 2021 priority is continued COVID relief and recovery for residents, particularly through our Work Force Initiative (WF). The WF Initiative assists residents getting back into the work force by helping with building resume, doing mock interviews, and ﬁnding job training programs. We have partnered with Seattle Public Libraries, who are providing resources for self-employment and starting small businesses. And, we are working with local community colleges and training centers for residents who wanted to pursue career trainings and certificates.
Other recovery initiatives include finding continued rental assistance as tenant protections are phased out, providing summer educational opportunities for youth in collaboration with Seattle Public Schools and working with a range of service providers to ensure marginally housed and homeless households can access housing and be successful after moving in.
