Project Reunite provides permanent supportive housing for women and men experiencing homelessness and in treatment for addiction, so they can reunite with children who were temporarily removed from their custody.
Residents are supported by on-site family advocates and meet with them weekly to create plans for self-sufficiency, identify and overcome barriers to permanent housing, and set goals for education, employment, financial security, legal issues, mental health, and more.
Participants in this program live at Trinity Place Apartments, an innovative community partnership between YWCA, travel guru Rick Steves, and Rotary Club of Edmonds. Steves purchased the 24-unit apartment building in 2005 and donated it to YWCA in 2016; Edmonds Rotary members volunteer and contribute to building maintenance.
