We released our unaudited 2022 Annual Report to the Community The report reveals a year of tremendous growth and details community-based efforts and dollars spent toward aid for Washingtonians, especially those with I/DDs, seeking to find, buy, or keep a home.
Our impact touches all corners of Washington state through four innovative programs: Affordable Housing, Homeownership, Group Home & Supported Living Services, and Community Engagement. The 2022 operating budget was $4.688 million, with the largest portion of those monies allocated toward our affordable housing programming. This critical program is making huge strides and funding was secured to develop six new affordable housing projects, including a first-of-its-kind Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit (DADU) Pilot Project near Lake City Way in Seattle. Additional projects in the pipeline, at various stages of development, are in Tukwila, Seattle, Marysville, Mukilteo, Graham, Gig Harbor, and Everett. By the end of this year Parkview Services expects to have 218 available units for adults with I/DDs and more than 230 available units by the end of 2024.
Our staff and client base grew while our community engagement programming (Camp Parkview), continued to provide meaningful activities and relationship building, delivering on our promise to provide a higher quality of life. The homeownership programs touches all parts of Washington and helped over 5,200 individuals buy, or keep, a new home through education, mortgage default counseling, downpayment assistance, or agreements and resolutions with loan servicers to prevent foreclosure.
Executive Director Marc Cote explained, “we have been laying groundwork and knocking on funders doors for the more than 5 years. In 2022, our hard work finally started to pay off. Our incredible staff and supporters will continue to work tirelessly to level the playing field so everyone who wants and needs a home can have one.”
