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.

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 will focus 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, we invite you to join us.Community Forum event page
