A big renovation and improvement project is in the works for Providence Dolores House, an affordable housing development for people with disabilities in Crown Hill.
Formerly known as Booth Gardens, the housing development is at 9722 8th Ave NW and was built in 1991 by Volunteers of America. The building was purchased by Providence Health & Services in 2017, and was renamed Providence Dolores House. It contains 16 units, providing subsidized housing for low-income individuals with disabilities.
The $2.5 million improvement project began on Jan. 6, and will include building a new roof, new windows and siding replacements, adding a fire sprinkler system, new fencing and signage, and common area improvements.
Funding for the improvements comes from a grant from Providence Supporting Housing and loans from the City of Seattle’s Office of Housing.
