110th Place

OVERVIEW: 110th St. is an 8 bedroom home built on the excess land that was part of the original Firwood Group Home. A "cluster house" is a shared housing situation whereby each client is provided an individual bedroom, but shares common living room space, kitchen, and laundry facilities. The clients at the cluster house are provided service on-site, but this is not a 24 hour supervised living situation. Daily contact is provided to each client that ranges from just check-in services to intensive case management depending on their needs. Most clients entering 110th are coming from Western State and local hospitals.

CLIENT PROFILE: Clients are currently being referred to by the King County Mental Health Division under the agency Standardized Supportive Housing Contract. This services contract pays at a significantly higher rate than the regular payments for clients at our Jackson St. outpatient site. Community House has made this choice to serve this client base, but is not required. The regulatory agreement only states that clients are from homeless situation with mental illness.

LOCATION: 10753 2nd Ave. N. W. Seattle, Wa. 98117
