Creating Housing and Educational Centers for Working Families


In the Seattle/King County region, where stories about escalating housing costs and homelessness dominate the headlines, a heated real estate market brings another burden to low-income and working families: a shortage of early learning centers.

A stable home is the foundation for a good education, and there is a strong linkage between high-quality early learning and positive lifelong outcomes. Thanks to a generous three-year grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Enterprise launched Home & Hope, a program to address both needs. 

Through the Home & Hope program, a coalition of early childhood educators, housing developers, elected officials, philanthropic organizations and public stakeholders is working to identify and secure underutilized public and tax-exempt land, which will be used to build affordable housing and facility space for educational programs throughout King County.
