On Monday, Vancouver and Washington state officials gathered alongside community members to celebrate the grand opening of Caples Terrace, a new public housing project offering affordable units to young adults who have aged out of foster care or fallen into homelessness.
Christina LaCelle, 20, could barely contain her excitement. She and her 3-month-old daughter Vivianne were just weeks away from moving into their very first apartment at the new complex.
From West Seattle Blog:
For the fourth consecutive year, West Seattle Elementary students got a first-day-of-school welcome like no other: The “Be There Rally.” 2016 was the first time community members were invited to greet and inspire the students. The event has continued growing in size and reputation, and this year drew more citywide dignitaries than ever. More on them later. First – WSE principal Pamela McCowan-Conyers got to tell the crowd all about her school.

The rectangular room is immaculate, with something to explore at every turn.

Not a book nor crayon is out of place on a recent weekday – it’s the calm before the storm.
From the San Bernardino Sun:
When Ana Santana and her children moved into their Loma Linda apartment nearly four years ago, it meant more than having a new place to live.
