Can you help us create a meaningful sense of belonging and community inclusion?
The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) and Interfaith Works (IW) are partnering on an unprecedented development of a 60 bed shelter, and 65 units of permanent supportive housing at 2828 Martin Way to be completed at the end of 2021. This building is being created to support neighbors in our community who are extremely low income, experiencing chronic homelessness, and who are living with complex challenges related to their physical and mental health. Both LIHI and Interfaith Works are committed to combating homelessness in our community, and we understand the crucial role that social inclusion and a sense of belonging plays in lifting the human spirit and providing an environment built for recovery and healing. Many organizations, sectors, and individuals have come together to make this monumental effort come to life, and we understand more now than ever how important cohesion and unity are to our collective well being. The project team has been working with the City of Olympia through the permitting and design process and the team seeks artists to activate the east facade of the building at street level in 3 distinct areas. Please share far and wide to help us find the perfect artist for this unique, and meaningful opportunity. Applications due October 30th, 2020! Please click the photo above to learn more!
