Proceeds from this year’s South Lake Union (SLU) Block Party will benefit Plymouth Housing Group. Plymouth Housing Group is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing permanent, supportive and stable housing to chronically-homeless adults. Today, Plymouth serves nearly 1,000 formerly-homeless adults living in 12 apartment buildings in Seattle. All residents have access to personalized counseling and caring support on their journey out of homelessness.
In early 2013, Plymouth will open its 13th building, the new Williams Apartments, in South Lake Union, creating 81 new homes in Seattle. Named after Plymouth’s long-time friend and supporter, Pat Williams, more than half of the apartments will be reserved for homeless veterans who are working towards stability and healthier futures.
Bring your appetite to this year’s block party and enjoy a sampling of food from some of South Lake Union’s favorite eateries! Food sampling tickets can be purchased at the information booth at one ticket for $1 or six tickets for $5 with all proceeds benefiting Plymouth Housing Group. Tickets can be redeemed at many restaurant booths, who will be offering a delicious array of bite-sized samples.
