Plymouth Housing is working to help residents of the newly opened 105-unit Bob and Marcia Almquist Place successfully transition into their home, through welcome baskets that include essential items like blankets, pots, pans, and toiletries. This provides a way both to support these new residents and honor long-time Plymouth Church members Bob and Marcia and their commitment to Plymouth’s mission. Bob and Marcia dedicated themselves to Plymouth Housing in many, many ways, right from its very beginning 40 years ago.
In order to assemble the welcome baskets safely, Plymouth Housing has created an Amazon wish list where donors can go online and purchase the items, which then get shipped directly to their offices.
The Bob and Marcia Almquist Place apartment building is located at 501 Rainier Ave. S. in Seattle's Chinatown-International District. The all-studio, six-story building is for people who have experienced long-term homelessness and live with behavioral health challenges. It includes three units for live-in staff. The building includes community rooms, a medical office staffed by NeighborCare Health, 1,100 square feet of retail space, and a maintenance shop for Plymouth Housing’s residential buildings. Bob and Marcia Almquist Place is open to people who make up to 30% of the area median income. For a one-person household, 30% is $23,250, but the incomes of most of the residents are expected to be about half that.
Thank you for your faithful support.
