Program

Services are provided on-site, with three units dedicated to live-in staff. The building also includes a ground-floor commercial space, two community rooms, a common kitchen, a clinic, and a large outdoor courtyard for the tenants to gather. The site was formerly home to St. Francis House, an organization dedicated to serving individuals experiencing homelessness. Plymouth partnered with St. Francis House to redevelop the site. The project is a win-win for both organizations, with over 52,000 square feet of residential area and almost 7,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space for St. Francis House. St. Francis House’s new space provides a sheltered courtyard for customer queuing, a new café space, and expanded “shopping” areas. The building is named after Bertha Pitts Campbell, a civil rights activist who worked to expand housing and opportunities for the black community and was the first black member of the board of directors of the YWCA of Seattle King Snohomish.
