EVERETT — The city of Everett’s plan to provide low-barrier housing to the homeless could use a few good homes.
The city has committed to housing 20 chronically homeless people in existing units by mid-year while it develops a permanent 60-unit facility. YWCA Seattle-King-Snohomish is the city’s partner in providing housing and case management services.
The city and YWCA are looking for more landlords interested in being part of this project. The city is offering guaranteed monthly rent income through the city’s Tenant-Based Rental Assistance Funds. That provides landlords and tenants with direct access to case managers, and offers remediation funds for unexpected or severe damages.
To take part, contact Nora Karena at the YWCA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
