For more than fifty years, Chief Seattle Club has served the native population of homeless individuals living in urban Seattle and King County from a single site in Pioneer Square. With this new project, CSC will add 120 units in north Seattle in support of its indigenous members. Designed by Rolluda Architects, with support from the firm of Jones & Jones, Sacred Medicine House will be a place of healing that will provide housing in a trauma-informed, culturally appropriate and holistic model centered on building community and fostering a sense of belonging. CSC will own and operate this multifamily supportive housing project for its native American/Alaska native and other indigenous community members. In keeping with its name, Sacred Medicine House will provide ground floor space for supportive and therapeutic activities, independent studio apartments above and ample outdoor recreation and healing space. Lotus is providing full development services including finance, project management, operating and service planning and support of project implementation.
