CHH Resident Services is proud to partner with Byrd Barr Place, one of Washington’s oldest community organizations. Byrd Barr Place provides “essential human services to Seattle residents who are struggling to make ends meet”. Their programs include healthy food, personal finance, housing and energy assistance focused especially on emergency situations.
Resident Services staff refer CHH residents to Byrd Barr’s Home Delivery food program and frequently use their resource list to connect residents to services. Staff have coordinated eight LIHEAP Outreach events to sign CHH residents up for Byrd Barr’s Energy Assistance Program.
This great relationship yields smooth referrals, letting Resident Services staff know that they are directing residents to a caring and responsive agency. CHH is also partnering with Byrd Barr Place on our Rise Together capital campaign to raise funding for equitable development projects in the Central District, Capitol Hill, and White Center – including the renovation of Byrd Barr Place’s historic home, Fire Station 23 (pictured above).
