Founded in 1991, the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) provides housing and other services to help low-income and homeless people achieve stability and security in their lives. LIHIís mission is to develop, own and operate housing for the benefit of low-income families and individuals in Washington state; encourage active participation of residents in the management of their housing; and advocate for just housing policies at the local and national levels. LIHI owns and/or manages 39 properties containing 1,250 housing units, providing housing for low-income families, seniors, people with disabilities, the working poor, and people who have experienced homelessness. Over 400 of these units are set aside for previously homeless households. Approximately 75% of LIHI residents earn less of the area median income, with 55% of LIHI residents meeting the federal definition of poverty. LIHIís housing is located throughout the Puget Sound region of Washington State with a concentration in Seattle.
