Building Changes, a Seattle-based nonprofit uniting public and private partners to end homelessness, was selected to lead the Yesler Terrace “social infrastructure” planning effort. The group worked with the existing Yesler Terrace community, including the Citizen Review Committee and the Yesler Terrace Community Council, to identify enhancements to existing social services and any needs for additional programs. Building Changes’ efforts focused on identifying programs—housed on the new Yesler Terrace site—that would enhance the quality of life and opportunity for residents.
