About Us

Welcome to the Jefferson County Housing Solutions Network!

HSN was founded in 2018 by the Jefferson Community Foundation, and serves as a response to the growing workforce 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 fundamentally works to grow a network of housing champions using the Community Network Building approach. Much of our work is driven by community members who volunteer their time and energy to identify  obstacles to affordable housing and then craft and implement strategies to create new solutions (often in groups).  To get a sense of our work, check out our 2020 Accomplishments and 2021 Accomplishments.

We have a mighty team of one full-time staff, two part-time staff and dozens of committed community volunteers. We hope you’ll join their ranks!

Kelsey Caudebec
Network Weaver

Kelsey grew up in Port Townsend, and is excited to have recently moved back with her husband to settle back down in her favorite town. She just finished her master’s degree in adult, professional, and community education, and was previously a non-profit coordinator and a neighborhood bartender. During her years away from PT, she maintained her connections and her interest in local issues.

 Steve Moore


Working over 25 years in the computer software and business consulting industries, Steve was ready to give back his time to the community. Steve serves on several boards and committees throughout Jefferson County but sees the lack of all kinds of affordable housing to be the largest problem the county is facing; he works diligently with HSN and Bayside Housing to support these greater missions. Steve enjoys spending time with his two dogs, taking them on hikes, and being out and about in East Jefferson County. In the winter months, he and his wife like to get away to Tucson Arizona for a little desert time.


Housing Solutions Network and Jefferson Community Foundation

HSN was initially incubated at JCF as a field-of-interest fund in order to meet a gap in the housing landscape: a space for new community leaders to develop new solutions for affordable workforce housing. It was the founders’ intention to pilot the effort in a measured, low-overhead environment and then, if successful, to build the governance and operating structures needed to become independent from JCF.

In addition, HSN has directed new funding to housing efforts through the Jefferson Community Foundation, provided scholarships for grant writing workshops, offered coaching and Board development for local organizations, and cultivated a wide-reaching communications platform to educate community members about housing challenges and housing solutions in our community.

HSN currently operates as a distinct initiative from JCF, with one full-time staff and two dedicated part-time staff members and a set of programs that are unique from JCF’s core programs and services. JCF still offers HSN support through administrative support and offers strategic feedback and guidance upon request. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any additional questions regarding the nature of our relationship.
