Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project

The Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project is a three-phase project that will create a state-of-the-art regional center to bring together a full continuum of behavioral healthcare, primary healthcare and permanent supportive housing services in downtown Everett.

Our purpose

To deliver innovative, evidence-based models of care that meet urgent community needs, including homelessness services with mental health support, intensive behavioral health services, and advanced integrated healthcare.

Fulfilling a need

This project is designed from the ground up to address some of our region’s most urgent and critical challenges. Without investing in effective solutions, behavioral health issues, homelessness, and chronic mental illness and substance use disorders place an unsustainable burden on community resources. With this initiative, Compass Health is poised to build stronger partnerships and provide better outcomes to promote whole person health.

A three-phase project to address a spectrum of needs

Phase I

Phase I includes 82 new units of housing, coupled with facilities for integrated treatment and support services for people with chronic behavioral health challenges.

This five-story, multi-unit building, known as Andy’s Place, is located on the northwest corner of the current Broadway Campus. The ground floor provides space for on-site program services including peer support, homeless outreach and housing stabilization.

Phase II

Phase II is a state-of-the-art facility that supports community-based care for individuals who will benefit from intensive services. The 72,000 square foot building will accommodate one 16-bed evaluation and treatment unit and one 16-bed triage. The building will also house offices for crisis prevention, outreach and engagement teams and an on-site pharmacy.

Phase III

The final phase of the project will include an approximately 100,000 square foot building to house behavioral health services and a primary healthcare clinic. The facility will also host permanent supportive housing units and space for Compass Health administrative offices. More information to come.

Building community support

We publicly launched It’s Time: The Campaign for Compass Health, a $14 million capital campaign to fund Phase II of the Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project, which designed to meet intensive mental health needs.

How does Compass Health engage with law enforcement?

We collaborate closely with law enforcement agencies across Northwest Washington through a range of longstanding relationships, as well as formal Community Response partnerships. This allows us to embed Compass Health mental health providers within law enforcement, 9-1-1 dispatch and other first responder teams to allow a mental health responder to utilize their specialized training for mental health needs as appropriate.

When officers refer individuals experiencing behavioral health needs to Compass Health and other providers, it can mark the beginning of a recovery journey. These referrals enable us to work with clients to pursue their goals for recovery, de-escalate issues, and help avoid dependence on jail or emergency departments.

Finally, when Compass Health team members observe drug use, vandalism or other illegal behavior caused by individuals not associated with our programs, it is our policy to alert authorities by calling 9-1-1 or the non-emergency line.

What other investments is Compass Health making in Everett’s core?

Compass Health is a proud member of the Everett Station Alliance to advance Everett’s core as a safe and secure place to visit, work and live. Along with a number of downtown businesses and organizations, Compass Health contributes a significant assessment to fund neighborhood security and cleaning services. Our membership in the Everett Station Alliance gives us another outlet for feedback and communication with non-residential members of the community.

How does Compass Health support neighbors who live and work near our Broadway campus?

While we strive for zero instances of negative interactions, we genuinely appreciate neighbors alerting us to problematic situations. HIPPA regulations and standard patient confidentiality prohibit us from sharing any client or tenant information, where applicable. But even in the many incidents involving community members who are not associated with Compass Health, dialogue with neighbors allows us to address concerns and gain a deeper understanding that can help us improve our operations where possible, and work collaboratively with neighbors and other leaders in the community to drive solutions.

For non-emergency situations, neighbors can contact our Compass Health community response team at In an emergency, contacting the authorities at 911 is the most expeditious and most appropriate response.

How are issues, such as housing insecurity, evolving?

The number of individuals with disabilities experiencing homelessness for long periods of time in the United States increased by 16% between 2020 and 2022, and homelessness among single individuals has increased as well. This is according to the press release from the 2022 Annual Homeless Assessment Report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development accessible HERE.  Everett is not immune to these complex issues, which require coordinated solutions from numerous members of the community to make a positive impact.

We are committed to working with our Everett community on strategies to address rising mental health needs, homelessness, drug use and other issues. These complex issues will not be solved by one single fix, so we have engaged a multi-pronged approach, outlined below.

Phase I

What safety policies are in place at Andy’s Place?

At Andy’s Place – as with our other facilities – we are squarely focused on supporting the safety of our clients, staff, and neighbors. Here are some of the safety best practices, policies and procedures we have in place.

  • Each tenant signs our Good Neighbor Policy that outlines actions that tenants agree to refrain from: littering; loitering; yelling; fighting; hassling neighbors, store vendors, etc.; aggressive panhandling; purchasing or selling drugs or paraphernalia.
  • Compass Health also has a strict guest policy – guests must check in and out of the building with staff at the front desk after being registered on an approved list of visitors with ID verification and be escorted by the resident they are visiting.
  • Controlled access so that entry is only possible through the front door with more than 50 cameras monitoring the premises.
  • No weapons are allowed. A private security company provides 24/7 security throughout the property. Thoroughly trained staff are proficient in conflict de-escalation and other safety measures and protocols.

How does Andy’s Place help to address the needs of vulnerable community members?

Compass Health’s approach to supporting whole person health acknowledges that an individual’s mental and physical health are interconnected and are affected by a mosaic of influences. For example, if a person is struggling to find permanent shelter and consistent meals, addressing their depression or other mental health needs is even more challenging, making it difficult to follow prescribed plans for therapy, medication, and other treatment. Because of this, one of the many services that Compass Health provides is long-term supportive housing at Andy’s Place.

Located at the corner of Lombard Avenue and 33rd Street, Andy’s Place provides permanent housing to individuals who are experiencing mental health needs under the Housing First model, an evidence-based approach to ending homelessness. Compass Health team members manage Andy’s Place and engage all residents to adhere to our Good Neighbor policy and safety protocols. While we make behavioral health services available to residents – and our goal is to support their long-term journey to recovery.

Andy’s Place includes 81 studios and one 3-bedroom unit, plus extensive common areas, serving low-income individuals with chronic mental illness. Intensive on-site support services include case management and a meal service program. The building also houses the Growth Center, which offers case management, counseling, mental health, and medical services to Compass Health non-residential clients.

You’ll find more here about Andy’s Place, which opened in 2021 as the first phase of our Broadway Campus Redevelopment. Building on its success, phase two will expand services available to residents and at-risk community members with intensive mental health needs. If you’re interested in keeping up with Compass Health’s Broadway Campus, we regularly post updates to this online resource center.

We see a phone in the rooms – does that service come with the room?

The phones in the room function like a doorbell or intercom that can be rung to apartment from outside the building. They do not function as your typical phone to make phone calls.

How long do you plan for the average resident stay at the facility? How many will the 82 units house annually?

The 81 studio units are permanent housing for 81 individuals. Residents can live at the building for as long as they like.

The 3-bedroom respite unit is short-term housing intended to provide support for up to 90 days for individuals transitioning out of the state hospital back into the community. During this 90-day time period, any benefits that have been on hold are re-activated and permanent housing is secured with the support of building staff. Building staff will also support these individuals during the transition into their identified permanent housing.

Do the residents pay rent?

We have many who will move-in with zero income so when they move-in they initially don’t pay any rent.   Each unit has rental subsidy attached to it and subsidy covers the full rent. After they are moved-in, housing staff work with the resident to be approved for any entitlement programs they qualify for. Examples of such programs include Social Security, Veterans compensation and pension. When a resident begins receiving these benefits their rent at that point in time will be adjusted to 30% of their income and the amount subsidy covers is reduced.

What is the cost to use of the laundry facilities?

The laundry facilities are for residents of the building and are free to use.

Can families qualify to live there? What are the age restrictions?

No. The studio apartments are designed as single-person units.

Individuals must be legally able to execute a lease to qualify for the building. This means they are at least 18 years of age or are legally emancipated if under the age of 18.

Are the residents free to come and go? Is the building secure?

Residents are free to come and go as they please.

It is a secured building. All exterior doors remain locked at all times. Residents and staff use the front door to enter and exit the building with an electronic key card. The outer lobby is equipped with an intercom through which visitors call staff at reception requesting entry. Residents must check in any guests who visit and there are policies for residents in place to assist tenants in setting limits on their visitors in  order to promote tenants’ long-term success in housing.

Who will manage and run the building? What are the professional credentials of the 24/7 staff planned to be on hand?

There is full-time building manager, exclusively dedicated to the operations and oversight of the building. Professional staff are required to have a BA in a relevant field and experience working with homeless and disabled individuals.

How was the building funded?

The building was funded by a variety of local, state, and federal funding, including private philanthropic sources.

What are the specific eligibility requirements to live there and how do people apply to live there?

Referrals for available units are primarily made from Snohomish County Coordinated Entry, a central access point which incorporates uniform screening, assessment, and prioritization.

The project also includes units sponsored by the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Aging and Long-Term Support Administration (ALTSA) of DSHS. These units are filled by direct referrals from those agencies who utilize similar uniform screening, assessment, and prioritization as Snohomish County Coordinated Entry.

To access Coordinated Entry and be assigned a navigator please contact 2-1-1 (or 800-223-8145) M-F, 8am-5pm. You can also access Coordinated Entry in person by going to the Carnegie Resource Center M-F, between the hours of 9am-4pm @ 3001 Oakes Ave, Everett WA 98201.

Phase II

What is the timeline for Phases II & III?

As of spring 2021, we’re engaged in early planning and development for Phase II & III. Subject to design and permitting processes, we are aiming to break ground on Phase II during the second quarter of 2022. The Phase II funding that was part of the capital budget was a key piece in helping the project come into fruition and a testament to legislative and community support.

You can learn more about the Washington State capital funding for Phase II here.
