Monica's Village Place is located in the heart of Seattleā€™s Central Area neighborhood, and is part of a larger initiative at Catholic Community Services of Western Washington to provide housing opportunities for formerly homeless people and low-wage workers from the surrounding neighborhood. Thirty-eight units are set-aside for families transitioning out of homelessness. The building is oriented around a central play area and healing garden for children and families, and also includes underground parking and office, commercial, and multi-use spaces for residents such as a community room and kitchen.
