Our Resident Services Program is a team of devoted staff members who work with residents to find the resources and services they need to thrive. The Resident Services program is free and confidential for all Bellwether Housing residents. We are here to help.
Our apartments are a strong foundation for our residents to grow, stabilize, rebuild, and thrive, and often residents need additional benefits and services to be stable, healthy, and thriving. By coupling housing with services, residents have stable homes and additional support in solving problems and achieving their goals.
Our program secured $3.65 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 Coordinators are friendly, supportive people that can help you navigate challenges and build community.
We continue to focus on 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 resume writing, interview prep, 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.
