SouthEast Effective Development (SEED) has improved community conditions in Rainier Valley by working to maintain affordable housing and growing commercial activity.

The projects, including the award-winning Rainier Court housing complex, also feature cultural and retail spaces.
King County residents ages 18 to 35 are least likely to feel connected to a group in their community.
