Coming Together to Build Vibrant and Engaged Communities

Our organization was originally founded as an outgrowth of community action. Today, we honor that history and recommit to driving community-led development through community forums, meetings, and public events. Fundraisers provide vital support of our programs and residents, while allowing Community Roots Housing to develop more affordable homes.


Hosted September 13, 2023

Each year, Community Roots Housing hosts Omnivorous, a food and beverage showcase featuring tastings from some of the finest bars, restaurants, and distilleries in the Seattle area, all in support of Community Roots’ work to build vibrant, engaged communities.

REVIVAL Market Series

Markets hosted throughout the year

REVIVAL Market Street is a fresh approach to outdoor markets that aims to repair some of the harm caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the endemic inequities it brought to light.

It’s a chance to support small businesses while reclaiming small sections of blighted city streets and revive our community in a productive and inclusive way.
