Providence Health & Services (PH&S) announces the renovation of the supportive housing community formerly known as the Booth Gardens Apartments located at 9722 8th Ave NW in Seattle’s Crown Hill Neighborhood. Construction on the $2.5 million project began on Jan. 6, 2020.

Built in 1991 by Volunteers of America, PH&S purchased the facility in December 2017 and renamed it Providence Dolores House. The 16-unit apartment building provides subsidized housing for low income persons with disabilities; 14 of the units are two bedrooms serving households of two or more, a rare resource in Seattle. Planned improvements include: a new roof; new windows and siding replacements; the addition of a fire sprinkler system; fencing and signage replacement and common area improvements. Work is made possible by a grant from Providence Supportive Housing and loans from PH&S and the City of Seattle, Office of Housing. Development partners are Walsh Construction serving as the general contractor and GGLO the project architect. 

Providence Dolores House is named after Sister Dolores Schulte, a Sister of Providence, who dedicated her ministerial life to the service of children with disabilities. Her legacy includes the Providence Child Center in Portland, Ore., the first-of-its-kind skilled pediatric nursing facility for medically fragile children.

Providence Dolores House is the seventh Providence supportive housing program in King County, Wash. and the 16th in the Providence Supportive Housing Ministry.
