Nearly 300 people gathered in Benaroya’s Grand Lobby to learn about the need for more affordable places to live and what Bellwether is doing to meet this growing need. With your help we raised $103,500! These contributions will help further our mission – to provide affordable housing in Seattle – and will promote the triple bottom line benefits that housing supports: social – as families and individuals are able to afford rent, their stresses recede, their children succeed in school, they can save for the future, their communities thrive; economic – employers experience less absence and turnover when working people live near jobs and transit, and business thrives when people have more discretionary income; environmental – people who live near jobs, transit and services drive less, air quality is better.
