(From December 2009 – “current” and “future” views of Avalon Place site)
Last December, the project finished Design Review – now, construction’s about to start. Transitional Resources has officially announced August 14th as the date for its groundbreaking ceremony at the site of Avalon Place (2988 SW Avalon Way). Read on for the TR news release:

The groundbreaking ceremony for Transitional Resources’ Avalon Place project in West Seattle will be held on Saturday, August 14th at 10:00 a.m. Speakers will include King County Executive Dow Constantine, Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen, and Transitional Resources’ Chief Executive Officer, Darcell Slovek-Walker.

Avalon Place will provide 16 units of permanent affordable housing, as well as supportive services for homeless men and women living with mental illness. Using the award-winning and highly effective “Housing First” model, Transitional Resources will move the most vulnerable homeless members of the community directly from the streets or shelters into studio apartments at Avalon Place. Once stable housing has been provided, residents will be eligible to receive supportive services addressing their mental health issues including case management and vocational assistance. Avalon Place will also incorporate the Evergreen Sustainable Development Criteria in an effort to reduce environmental impacts and promote conservation and utility cost savings for the low-income residents.

The project is part of the Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness and is funded by the King County Housing and Community Development Program and the City of Seattle Office of Housing. Partnering with Transitional Resources as part of this project are Common Ground, The Keimig Associates, and Abbott Construction.

Transitional Resources has been providing innovative and respective mental health care to residents of King County for over 30 years. With a specialization in serving individuals with the most serious and persistent forms of mental illness, Transitional Resources offers a wide range of assistance including case management, crisis intervention, affordable housing, and vocational services.

TR already offers housing and day-center services in buildings north of the future Avalon Place site.
