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.

Learn Why Affordable Housing is Critical

Please join us for our annual fundraising event!

This year we are moving our Annual Fundraiser to an online format and are excited to join together for a week of events to celebrate what we, as a community, can do when we work together to make a change. Funds raised at our annual event support the operation of our housing programs, maintenance of our affordable rental units, and make it possible to create more housing that is affordable for the Bainbridge Island community.

During the week of October 5th we will be sending you inspiring stories about home and community, about our hard-working staff, and about how important housing is to us all. On October 8th you can join us for our live fundraiser featuring:

Conor Dougherty – an economics reporter at the New York Times, author of Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America.

Senator Emily Randall – State Senator from the 26th District and chair of the Senate Higher Education & Workforce Development Committee.

Matt Albee – founder, owner and winemaker at Eleven Winery and current chair of the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce.

Why Housing Matters

Our Work in the Community

Bainbridge Island is a positive, unique, and connected community just 35 minutes away from Seattle by ferry. Our unique geography means that there are very few degrees of separation between us: we help each other because we know and care about each other. Statistics also tell us what we already feel – that a balanced and diverse community is a healthier and happier community with more trust, less crime, more social mobility, and longer lives.

Housing Resources Bainbridge (HRB) is Bainbridge Island’s only independent, non-profit, affordable housing provider and advocate. Our organization is committed to ensuring the diversity and vitality of Bainbridge Island by providing and maintaining affordable housing opportunities in the community.

Building Affordable Housing is an Act of Welcome

When we build housing that’s affordable, we spread the message that everyone who lives and works on Bainbridge belongs here.

In our brand new video we hear from our neighbors who are affected by the housing crisis, how the community came together to help and how HRB is planning for the future.
