Housing Snohomish County Project

Tools for Building Community Acceptance of Supportive Housing

An Affordable Housing Community Breakfast Event

The speakers will focus on ways to build support for affordable housing in communities where resistance is present. Over the years, BC Housing has developed a series of best practices for building community support and presenting the value that affordable housing brings to communities.


Rebecca Siggner, BC Housing

Please note that costs to produce these breakfasts have risen steadily but the price to attend has remained constant since 2012. With the December breakfast we will be charging $20 to attend these events.
