Welcome to the Jefferson County Housing Solutions Network (HSN), an initiative of the Jefferson Community Foundation (JCF). HSN was founded in 2018 through a generous grant of the First Federal Community Foundation, and serves as a response to the growing housing crisis in Jefferson County, Washington. We work to facilitate connectivity, communication and the co-creation of new strategies to increase the availability of affordable and attainable housing in our region. We work alongside local housing champions – both individuals and institutions – by providing support and capacity building to ensure success.
HSN has directed new grant dollars to housing efforts through the Jefferson Community Foundation and provided scholarships for grant writing workshops, as well as offered coaching and Board development for local organizations. In addition to our Housing Action Teams, we have convened groups of stakeholders to identify and act on local issues of concern, including local workforce and affordable housing developers, community advocates, systems engineers and government staff.
We have a mighty team of three-part time staff and dozens of committed community volunteers. We hope you’ll join their ranks!
On this website, you will find resources and opportunities to engage on this critical issue. We hope you will join the effort to strengthen our community through ensuring housing for all.
