Compass Crossing Pilot Project

The homeless crisis in Seattle continues to escalate and shows no sign of easing. In November 2015, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray declared a state of emergency on homelessness. As the King County homeless population continues to grow each month, there is a critical need for a rapid, responsive and scalable solution to accelerate access to affordable housing for the most vulnerable in our community.

Compass Housing Alliance has a solution: Compass Crossing, an innovative steel-frame modular housing community. It brings together dignified housing and people-centered services to create 13 new housing units at the corner of Angeline and 39th Streets in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood.

Compass Crossing creates a supportive community for its residents that is respectful of racial diversity and gender equality.

We are excited to share The Paul G. Allen Foundation has awarded Compass Housing Alliance $1 million in support of the Compass Crossing Pilot Project. Click here to learn more about this exciting announcement!
