The King County Housing Authority continues to build and expand community facilities at many of its properties. These resources keep families healthy and help children succeed in school. They also help parents attain job skills that support economic self-sufficiency.
As a result of renovations inside and out, the King County Housing Authority's subsidized housing properties look as good as or better than housing in the surrounding community.
Working with a network of partners, the King County Housing Authority provides a variety of resources to help kids succeed in school and in life. This includes after-school tutoring, enrichment classes, computer labs, and community centers.
