Phase I: Supportive Housing

Compass Health Celebrates Grand Opening of Andy’s Place, Supportive Housing Building

Thank you to everyone who attended our virtual grand opening and celebration for our new permanent supportive housing building! We are honored and excited to share this building with the community and the individuals who will call this place home.

The grand opening of this building, also known as Phase I of Compass Health’s Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project, was jointly celebrated with the allocation of $14 million in state capital funding for Compass Health’s phase two building, a state-of-the-art facility for intensive behavioral health services.

Phase I: Supportive Housing Building

One of the most pressing needs in our community is housing and services for people experiencing homelessness, especially those living with severe and persistent mental illness. Phase I is designed to address the complex needs of this vulnerable population as we amplify our leadership role in the community.

Andy’s Place is a new, 46,877  square-foot, multi-unit building on a formerly vacant parcel on the northwest corner of Compass Health’s Broadway Campus. The five-story building will include 82 units of housing – doubling the number of Compass Health’s housing units in Snohomish County.

  • 81 of these units are designated for permanent supportive housing.
  • One three-bedroom unit replicates and existing program and is reserved for individuals transitioning back into the community from Western State Hospital.
  • Eight units are designated for homeless veterans funded with Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) vouchers.

A community center located on the ground floor provides 5,200 square feet of space for on-site program services to support residents. The center also provides additional space to serve a variety of mental health and homeless service programs accessed by the broader behavioral health client population, including peer support, homeless outreach and housing stabilization support.

The project is operated under the Housing First model for Supportive Housing, which aligns with the City of Everett’s Safe Streets Initiative to help individuals transition out of homelessness by providing low-barrier access to housing while they receive other services and support they need. The building is open, and its units are occupied by residents during the second quarter of 2021.


Cost: $26 million

Broke ground: Spring 2020

Referral Process

We know that there is such a need for housing in our region. This building promotes housing for the most vulnerable, chronically homeless individuals who have persistent behavioral health challenges.

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) Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm. You can also access Coordinated Entry in person by going to the Carnegie Resource Center, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9am-4pm @ 3001 Oakes Ave, Everett WA 98201.

Phase I Groundbreaking Ceremony

Compass Health Breaks Ground on Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project

For many months, we have had waited in anticipation for the start of construction on our Broadway Campus Redevelopment project. In February 2020, the project was officially underway as our CEO Tom Sebastian joined Washington State Governor Jay Inslee, Senator Maria Cantwell, Congressman Rick Larsen and Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin at the groundbreaking ceremony for our phase-one permanent supportive housing facility.

During the ceremony, Tom and our city, state and federal leaders addressed the importance of the project’s goal to leverage our approach to community-based care to divert patients from inpatient settings and ease the burden on local hospitals, law enforcement and homeless services.
