The gift that keeps on giving!

When you support Homestead you help provide a deserving individual or household with the opportunity to own their own home, expand the number of permanently affordable homes in the Seattle area and strengthen the communities where all of us live, work and play.

Homestead, by employing the community land trust approach to homeownership, is a prudent and efficient investment of public housing dollars and community philanthropy. Money invested in Homestead is used to keep homes affordable for the long-term and to ensure homeowner success. Housing subsidy funds stay permanently invested in each home, so even after many resales, a Homestead home stays in service of the community, creating access to homeownership for the entirety of the home's useful life.
