Solid Ground’s residential facilities provide emergency shelter, transitional and permanent housing, and comprehensive case management for formerly homeless families and individuals. Beyond providing roofs over heads, we strive to connect residents with the resources and support they need to identify and achieve their goals.

Broadview Emergency Shelter & Transitional Housing
Broadview is a safe haven at a secure location for mothers and kids experiencing homelessness. Using a trauma-informed care model, we provide case management, children’s programs, domestic violence and addictions support groups, parenting classes and housing search assistance.
Broadview was one of the first residential programs in our community for women and children moving out of domestic violence situations. Since 1983, it has served as a safe haven for women and children experiencing homelessness through emergency shelter and transitional housing in a secure, confidential facility.
With a comprehensive array of support services and a trauma-informed care focus, Broadview helps residents acknowledge and heal from displacement and abuse, address the issues that led to their homelessness, and find secure, permanent housing.
Broadview’s specialized children’s services help young people restore a sense of safety, normalcy and structure so that they too can heal and thrive.
Domestic Violence Survivors may call 206.299.2500 for Solid Ground’s confidential Domestic Violence shelter services, or 2-1-1 for other King County resources.
Family Shelter provides short-term housing in furnished apartments for families and single-parent households (headed by mothers or fathers) with children 18 and younger, and can accommodate large or extended families.
Support services, comprehensive case management, and housing search assistance helps families stay connected to their schools, jobs and other community resources and support systems. Our primary program goal is to help families find more permanent housing as quickly as possible.
Family Shelter cannot be accessed directly. Families needing emergency housing should contact 2.1.1 for screening eligibility for all King County programs.
Sand Point Housing
Our Sand Point Housing campus provides transitional housing, affordable permanent housing, and onsite support services for formerly homeless families and individuals. The stunning campus, located in Seattle’s Magnuson Park near Lake Washington, is on land that was surplussed by the U.S. Navy. It includes historic renovated buildings and new construction totaling 175 townhomes and apartments.
Since 1999, more than 3,000 people have stayed at Sand Point Housing in their journey from homelessness to stability. Today, nearly 500 people (including almost 250 children and youth) live in a thriving community with onsite support services at Sand Point.
The Sand Point Housing Campus includes…
- Brettler Family Place
- Sand Point Family Housing
- Phyllis Gutiérrez Kenney Place
- Santos Place
- Three groups homes operated by Friends of Youth and YouthCare

History of Sand Point Housing
Originally summer hunting and fishing grounds for the Duwamish Tribe, Sand Point was home to Naval Station Puget Sound from 1922 until 1995. When it was surplussed, the City of Seattle’s Reuse Plan for the base included 200 housing units for people experiencing homelessness.
As a founding member of the Sand Point Community Housing Association, Solid Ground helped convert six decommissioned naval buildings into 94 housing units for people experiencing homelessness. In 2007, the City asked Solid Ground to manage the site and develop additional housing.
In 2011 and 2014, we opened new townhomes and apartments on campus, with a community space at its center. In addition, our partners YouthCare and Friends of Youth run group homes in what used to be naval officers’ quarters.
