Nickelsville Residents Settle into New Home on LIHI Site

On September 1st, the Nickelsville homeless encampment was evicted from it's two year home on W. Marginal Way. Nickelsville, LIHI, Food Lifeline, the Church Council of Greater Seattle, and others came together to search for a new home. Unable to find a single site that could house all 100 residents, Nickelsville has split into three sites: one in Skyway, one at 22nd and Union, and one at LIHI's property at 2020 S. Jackson St., adjacent to LIHI's newly opened low-income senior housing Ernestine Anderson Place. The Missionary Tabernacle Baptist Church is providing services and hosting Nickelsville on our site.  The site is housing 35 people, including 15 children.

Donations of warm clothing, blankets, pillows, diapers, tents, and tarps can be dropped off at the reception desk at the site.  Tax-deductible donations to Nickelsville can be made through LIHI. Click HERE and designate your gift to Nickelsville.

Nickelsville will reside at 2020 S. Jackson for a year. The future plan for the property is for LIHI to construct 60 units of affordable workforce housing that will offer 15 studios, 20 one-bedroom, and 25 two-bedroom apartments. The ground floor will become the new home for LIHI's offices. The apartments will be rented at or below 60% of the King County Area Median Income (AMI). Households at 60% AMI earn approximately $36,000 - $52,000 (depending on household size).
