Transitional housing and support services to help families leave homelessness and move into permanent housing.
YWCA Family Village Redmond is a safe and beautiful building located in downtown Redmond with 20 units of transitional housing for families who have experienced homelessness. YWCA offices and services are located on the first floor, with recreational facilities on the south-facing side of the building.
Programs and services currently offered at this location include:
Conveniently located near multiple King County Metro bus lines, Redmond Transit Center, and walking distance from several grocery stores, parks, schools, a library, post office and the Family Resource Center (home to 18 social service agencies). Built in 1993, this facility was designed by architects Michael Pyatok and Ron Hopper and is one of the tallest buildings in Redmond.
Physically and socially, Family Village Redmond fits into the surrounding neighborhood. CEO Sue Sherbrooke noted, "The Redmond community has enthusiastically supported this program. The adjacent school has welcomed the children. Boy Scouts have built furniture for the child care center, clothing donations have overwhelmed the Working Wardrobe, and church groups have furnished the apartments."
