Community Engagement

Since 2018, CFH has worked to publicize our plans to build a permanent center for men experiencing homelessness, and we have invited—and continue to invite—the community to engage with the process. To date, these efforts have included the following:

Through a Press Release and Media Event, CFH announced the preferred site in Eastgate, which generated press coverage.

Further press coverage, though primarily focused on the Lincoln Center Retrofit, often incorporated discussions/references to the proposed permanent shelter location.

We also continued communication with adjacent/nearby neighbors by meeting with neighboring businesses, walking the neighborhood with local representative(s), and providing collateral materials and offering to meet as needed.

CFH issued a press release announcing plans for the Eastgate Campus, which includes Inland and Horizon Housing Alliance. 

Eastgate Campus representatives met with City of Bellevue Council members.

CFH, Inland and Horizon held a community meeting for local businesses and Eastgate area residents where we shared the current status of the Eastgate Campus Plan.
