The role of permanent affordable rental housing

Imagine Housing fills a need for housing in the community that is currently under-met. The range of affordable housing options on the Eastside ranges from temporary shelters and transitional housing to affordable home ownership. Imagine Housing offers permanent affordable rental homes, the foundational stepping stone from emergency shelters or transitional housing that makes it possible for individuals and families to stabilize their housing and break the cycle of poverty. Without this key element of the housing spectrum, those coming out of shelters and transitional housing are at risk of becoming homeless again. We also provide homes for those who are not in critical need or emergency housing but are looking for long-term affordable housing options.
