Project Overview

New construction of a two-story mixed-use, wood-frame building includes a 15-bed transitional home, 12-bed emergency shelter, and a drop-in youth center with kitchen, laundry and showers. Site developments consisted of demolition of an existing 1,200 sf structure, new parking stalls, re-pavement of alley and new fire access lane, site infiltration landscape and sidewalks. The facility is the first of its kind in South King County. Arcadia assists homeless youth, ages 12 to 24 with services at all stages including homelessness prevention, emergency shelter and long-term transitional housing in addition to behavioral health.
