In October 2005, we unveiled Trinity Place,
a new transitional housing complex for homeless women and children in Lynnwood.
Trinity Place is a unique collaboration between the YWCA, Rick Steves and his business Europe Through the Back Door, and the Rotary Club of Edmonds. Watch a video on Project Stand about how Trinity Place came to be.
This collaborative effort makes Trinity Place unique among the YWCA’s housing network, allowing several entities to come together and create lasting, positive change. Rick Steves used a retirement “nest egg” to purchase the 24-unit building. He will retain ownership for 15 years. The YWCA is responsible for designing and operating the transitional housing program at Trinity Place. The Rotary Club of Edmonds selected Trinity Place for its Centennial Community Service Project and provides landscaping and maintenance support for the 15-year program commitment.
The apartments are ideally situated near Lynnwood’s city center, within walking distance of bus lines and central shopping, the Lynnwood Public Library, the police and fire departments, a community health center, city parks, a recreation center and Edmonds Community College.
