We provide transitional, permanent, and supportive housing


A Continuum of Housing Services

We provide a continuum of housing services: transitional, permanent, and supportive.

It includes subsidized rental support (made possible by King County and King County Housing Authority), move-in support, and case management. We work closely with landlords and apartment managers to help the women find housing and stability.

Housing case management is given to all women to help them continue making progress on their pathway to stable and sustainable living.

Holly House

Transitional Housing

Holly House is our transitional house that provides housing for six women, who live in community with one another. Our case managers guide and support the women.

Named for the enormous holly trees on the property, the house, a parsonage, was gifted by East Shore Unitarian Church in the Factoria neighborhood in Bellevue in 2010. Organizations – Moccasin Lake Foundation, Jubilee Services, Newport Ward of the LDS Church – rallied around to help with the extensive renovations. The cities of Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond, and Sammamish generously provide rent subsidies which create sustainable, affordable housing opportunities for the women of Holly House.
