Thanks to the Team at our Blackburn Building integrated health and housing project!

Great group of WALSH and RDF folks at our Blackburn Building integrated health and housing project for Central City Concern! The project, designed by Ankrom Moisan Architects, Inc., originally known as the Eastside Health Center, is part of the “Housing is Health” initiative. The initiative is a partnership between CCC and six local hospitals and health organizations to provide supportive, affordable housing.

The Blackburn Building, named after former CCC President Ed Blackburn, will include affordable housing, health care facilities, a pharmacy and commercial retail space. The 6-story integrated housing and clinical services building will focus on recovery and mental health services, with some targeted primary care services. The clinic will serve about 3,000 patients annually.

Thanks to the WALSH Team of Aaron Elliott, Matt Godt, Duane Stearns, Brian Ames, Steffen Schulz and Linda Woolery for their dedicated efforts building safely on a tight site near the MAX line!

So much fun at the Seattle Walsh Family Picnic

Saturday was a perfect day for our Superhero-themed Walsh Family Picnic! The Seattle weather was great, and the food was delicious, we had a great time visiting with co-workers, families and our special guests Wonder Woman and Spiderman. A big thank you to all who made this event a success and exciting! Special thanks to Cristina Rivera and Rachel Bang for the planning and execution of a flawless picnic. To the kids and the young at heart who came in their superhero outfits/costumes, thank you for adding to the superhero aura, and with Spiderman and Wonder Woman characters around, it was magical!
