OVERVIEW: Brierwood is a 24 unit residence that was built on land that was part of the original Brierwood Group Home. Brierwood is technically a "congregate residence" under Seattle zoning code. The zoning allowed Community House to maximize the number of units on the site. Each client has an individual "hotel style" room. This room has private bathroom, microwave, and small refrigerator. Each of the 3 floors of the building has a shared kitchen. The building has one full unit with individual kitchen for a resident manager unit.
CLIENT PROFILE: Clients are currently being referred to by the King County Mental Health Division under the agency Standardized Supportive Housing Contract. This service 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 5 units are homeless clients.
LOCATION: 11020 Greenwood Ave. N. W. Seattle, Wa. 98133
