Building COMMUNITY THROUGH HOUSING

Our mission is to preserve the diversity and vitality of Bainbridge Island by providing and maintaining affordable housing opportunities in the community.

Our Programs

HRB provides and maintains affordable housing for rent or sale across Bainbridge Island.

Help HRB Purchase 550 Madison Avenue!

Help support HRB’s efforts to acquire our portion of the acquisition of the 550 Madison Avenue property. Dollars from the fund will support immediate costs in purchasing the property to ensure that the 13 affordable units are preserved in perpetuity and families can remain stably housed in the short-term. Funds raised will be combined with $100,000 from HRB’s reserves to support the overall goal of acquisition by August 31, 2019.

Note: If for any reason this project is unable to move forward, all contributed funds will be allocated to the acquisition of new affordable housing on Bainbridge Island or housing assistance for the current tenants of 550 Madison.
