Volunteers Give Time, Energy During The United Way’s Day of Caring

Five of Compass Housing Alliance’s program locations look a little fresher this week after Friday’s Day of Caring. Eight teams joined us to help paint and spruce up our affordable housing, transitional housing, and shelter programs.

Thanks to volunteers, participating companies, and The United Way for your help!

Peter’s Place

Teams from Zillow and Microsoft painted Peter’s Place. Peter’s Place offers both nighttime shelter and daytime drop-in services, providing  meals, case management, and access to a nurse and mental health services.

Pioneer Square Men’s Program

United Way Loaned Executives tackled a painting project at our Pioneer Square Men’s Program. This program provides transitional housing for 70+ men. Located at our headquarters, Pioneer Square Men’s Program operates alongside our Client Services Office & Hygiene Center.

Karlstrom Apartments

Teams from the Seattle Sounders FC & Microsoft helped repaint a large section of our Karlstrom Apartment building. Karlstrom offers permanent affordable housing for low income singles.


Children’s Center at our Renton Veteran’s Program

A Microsoft team gave the Children’s Center at our Renton Veteran’s Program a facelift. Renton Veteran’s provides transitional housing and permanent affordable housing for veterans and their families. The Children’s Center offers reading groups, art classes, and more to engage young residents.

Northlake Grove

Teams from Edifecs and General Dynamics- OTS spruced up our Northlake Grove property. Northlake Grove is a cooperative permanent housing program providing housing for 24-low income singles and families.
