Providence Elizabeth House
Providence Elizabeth House is a high-quality, supportive housing program founded by the Sisters of Providence and owned and managed by Providence Health and Services. Designed and built especially for low-income, aging seniors, the building features 74 private apartments with all the comforts of home. Each apartment includes full kitchen amenities with a dining area, a private bathroom with tub or walk-in shower, built-in storage and an open floor plan. Shared laundry facilities and welcoming community spaces are available to all residents.
Located in the newly redeveloped High Point community in West Seattle, our non-smoking, pet friendly facility offers plenty of parking and building security. Some apartments offer views of the city while others enjoy the lush greenery of a park and pea patch or of the community’s raised garden beds. Public transportation is easily accessible and a community van provides transportation for resident outings. Elizabeth House is a perfect choice for seniors who want to be close to the city but enjoy the beauty of green spaces.
Providence places a high value in supporting individual residents and creating a vibrant community by providing raised garden beds, a shared computer lab with internet access, gathering spaces for resident groups, a wide variety of scheduled activities including educational and recreational programming and a high staff-to-resident ratio. A Service Coordinator can help residents identify and access local resources and services, and can advocate for residents who need assistance.
Providence Elizabeth House receives an operating subsidy from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD requirements state that applicants for housing at Providence Elizabeth House must be at least 62 years of age at the time of application and their annual income cannot exceed 50% of the area median income. Residents pay approximately 30% of their monthly income toward their rent and utilities.
Providence Elizabeth House provides equal housing opportunities for all prospective tenants regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, parental/family status, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, creed, political ideology, gender identity or membership in any other class of persons.
