Housing and Residence Life
The purpose of the program is to help provide housing or scholarships to homeless and near homeless students presently attending Edmonds CC who meet the Project Home requirements. There are two different types of support through the Project Home Program and if you have been a student for at least one quarter, are single with no children, and are alcohol and drug free, then you can fill out one or both of these applications:
Transitional Apartments at YWCA (just across the street from campus) - Our Housing Office works closely with YWCA to provide a male and female unit in the YWCA-Somerset complex across the street from the college to serve as transitional housing for eligible students. Criteria must be met in order for a student to apply for a room with Project Home. The YWCA units have 4 bedrooms each. Currently we have two male openings and no female openings.
Immediate Need Rental Fund Scholarship - Project Home (student club) is a group of students wanting to help fellow students. For the 5th year in a row, the club has raised enough money to secure funds for students needing some support towards getting into an apartment, paying rent, paying for a hotel room...securing their housing situation so they can continue as a student and be in a safe and warm environment.
All students should first start with our Counseling and Resource Center in Mountlake Terrace Hall (room 145) for guidance on the best program for them.
The program is a "Hand Up" not a "Hand Out." Students who are chronically homeless are not appropriate candidates for Project Home as we do not provide social services.
The students who will be most eligible are those who are classified as our "new homeless" population.
