LIHI’s Southend Village in Rainier Valley, Seattle – these homes built by SFNW

Yes.  While Sound Foundations NW builds the tiny homes, we collaborate with the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) and other nonprofits to manage the villages and offer the social services, emotional support, and skills training that residents need to move beyond homelessness.  As of Fall, 2023, LIHI manages 21 tiny home villages in King, Pierce, Thurston & Whatcom Counties.  Two other service providers, Chief Seattle Club and Catholic Community Services, operate three additional tiny home villages within Seattle.
