A new housing project has opened in Vancouver that will help provide supportive housing for people exiting homelessness.

The Elwood, at 6317 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd., has 46, 400-square-foot, one-bedroom, garden-style apartments.

It is the second completed housing project of the Housing Initiative, a mission-driven affordable housing development subsidiary of the Council for the Homeless.

All tenants have been identified and will receive rent assistance and supportive services through partner agencies.

“The Elwood apartment homes will improve every aspect of health and well-being, especially during the COVID pandemic,” Housing Initiative CEO Sierk Braam said in a news release. “The entire community benefits when community members have a place to call home.”

The Elwood was financed through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, Clark County, and the City of Vancouver Affordable Housing Fund.
