You might remember we reported on the story about Capitol Hill getting an affordable senior housing project for the LGBTQ community earlier this month (go here to check it out) and now the community organizations putting together the project will host a community forum on August 7th to update their info and answer questions community members might have.
The project, set for Broadway between Pike and Pine Streets and adjacent to popular nightclub, Neighbours, is the work of Capitol Hill Housing and Generations Aging with Pride (GenPRIDE) who will be the anchor community tenant on the ground floor of the new building. More info below. The event is free but please register HERE if you plan on attending.
