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.

Community Forum

September 29, 2022

The Community Forum is an annual event hosted by the Capitol Hill EcoDistrict, a neighborhood-based sustainability initiative serving the most densely populated urban village in the Pacific Northwest. The 2021 forum focused on amplifying the voices of all community stakeholders to create better public life for all in Capitol Hill. We believe that the contributions of all users are critical to creating a successful, fully inclusive neighborhood plan – whether you live, study, work, own a business, eat, shop, or simply pass through the neighborhood.

Annual Meeting

November 15, 2022

As a Public Development Authority, we hold an annual stakeholder meeting to brief community members on the activities and goals of the organization. This event is an opportunity to hear directly from Community Roots Housing leadership and includes time for dialogue.

Top of the Town

May 5, 2022

Community Roots Housing’s annual fundraising dinner is an evening with community leaders, developers, and friends who believe in creating an affordable and inclusive Seattle. Top of the Town is an opportunity to learn from the thoughts and experiences of visionaries leading development work in communities across the region. Last year, we were excited to feature thought leader Vu Le and his astute observations on social justice issues.
