King County Housing Authority

Education Initiative

BERK is helping the King County Housing Authority (KCHA) coordinate the comprehensive provision of housing, academic, and social service supports to its resident families. The goal of the Initiative is to help children and youth to overcome the existing educational achievement gap and be better positioned for success in school and later in life. This coordination of services is specific to the demographic makeup and needs of the population living within defined catchment areas surrounding multiple KCHA properties.

BERK is working on separate projects in the White Center, Kent East Hill and Bellevue catchment areas.
