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.

Top of the Town

Thursday, May 6th, 2021

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. Past speakers have included Denis Hayes, the founder of Earth Day and the CEO of the Bullitt Foundation; AP-Hurd, Seattle’s Developer of the Year; and Ijeoma Oluo, a Seattle-based writer known for her cutting-edge work on racial equity and social justice. This year, we were excited to feature thought leader Vu Le and his astute observations on social justice issues.

Annual Meeting

As a Public Development Authority, we hold an annual stakeholder meeting to brief community members on the activities and goals of the organization. The 2021 Annual Meeting is being planned; stay tuned for details!

Community Forum

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 2020 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 for a Community Design Workshop. Details coming soon.    


Sponsorship provides high profile opportunities to support our mission, be associated with really fun events, and connect with key decision makers. Here is our 2021 sponsorship packet.
