Ronald Commons

Ronald Commons

Ronald Commons is a new affordable housing development in Shoreline at 178th Street between Aurora Avenue North and Linden Avenue North. The project includes a renovation of the Ronald United Methodist Church (RUMC) building and a new construction, mixed-use building that will include 60 units of affordable housing, owned and operated by Compass Housing Alliance, and a 12,000 square feet Integrated Service Center owned and operated by Hopelink.

The Integrated Service Center will include a food bank, family services, and financial education and assistance for low-income households. An internal courtyard, play area and walking path will create an integrated connection between the three program facilities.
