SEED's mission is to improve the quality of life in Southeast Seattle by creating partnerships and inspiring investments in housing, arts and economic development - with a special focus on residents with fewer opportunities and resources.


Everyone should have affordable and decent housing. For decades SEED has been building, redeveloping, and operating affordable housing. Our apartment properties range in size from 8 units to 379 units, and provide transitional housing for homeless families, workforce housing and senior housing. The need is greater than ever – and SEED is determined to help meet that need.

Creating accessible living wage jobs in Southeast Seattle is a pressing social justice and equity goal. SEED’s aim is to foster strategic commercial and entrepreneurial development, as well as skills development programs, that offer local residents pathways to the jobs created. SEED provides affordable small business spaces, technical assistance, and support for technology that nurtures innovation, job retention and creation. SEED is committed to vigorous advocacy and action geared to stimulate business investment and jobs in Southeast Seattle.

Arts &

SEEDArts believes art can be transformative, build community, and drive economic well-being. We offer visual, performing, and public art programs, as well as creative spaces, that enable artists to inspire and connect residents and visitors of Southeast Seattle. SEEDArts operates the Columbia City Gallery, the Rainier Valley Cultural Center, the SEEDArts Studios, a Public Art Program, SEEDArts Cinema, and coming soon, Rainier Valley Radio.
