With half of its funding in place, Pendleton Place enters ‘last leg’ of capital push (Bremerton Housing Authority)

From the Kitsap Sun:

It’s not cheap to build a permanent supportive housing complex. Even as city officials across the Washington have touted the benefits of the ‘Housing First’ model, the multi-million investment necessary for construction costs can be prohibitively expensive. 

But in Kitsap, there’s been a surge of progress overcoming funding barriers that have long thwarted potential projects. After years of discussion, Kitsap’s first permanent supportive housing project, Pendleton Place, has continued to see fundraising success. 

The 72-unit apartment complex -— spearheaded by nonprofit Kitsap Mental Health Services — heads into the New Year with around half of its capital budget secured. That’s kept the ambitious project on pace to start construction in September, with plans to accept residents by the end of 2021. 

The apartment complex will provide housing and support services to people living with chronic homelessness, mental illness and substance-abuse disorders. The project is estimated to cost about $21.3 million to build.


The Bremerton Housing Authority has kicked in $3.1 million for development — and will supply 56 housing vouchers to cover ongoing costs — and the city was instrumental in locating and re-zoning the site off Kitsap Way just west of Highway 3.
