Parkview Services Programs
The Affordable Housing Rental Program provides safe, accessible and community based housing for individuals/ families with Intellectual/ Developmental Disabilities in King and Snohomish Counties. Parkview Services provides the maintenance and capital needs assessments of these 54 properties in order to ensure long term homes for the I/DD Community. They accomplish this by carrying 40-50 year contract commitments with government to keep these homes operating as affordable community based housing, with both interior and exterior high standards of maintenance and repairs.
Camp Parkview offers adult individuals a place to build lasting relationships and community. Camp takes place in August every year on Vashon Island. It is run by 40 Volunteers and one paid Director. It provides hope and strength the other 51 weeks of the year for campers with I/DD.
Parkview Services HomeOwnership Program offers Down Payment Assistance (DPA) and Mortgage Delinquency & Default Counseling (MDDC). The DPA Program for first time homebuyers living with or who have a disability provides up to $135,000 of assistance for those who income and credit qualify, and complete the home buyer/ financial education courses. They have helped closed 70 homes for individuals and families living with a disability. DPA supports people under 80% of average median income begin asset development.
Parkview Services began foreclosure prevention services in mid 2008. As of 2011 Parkview Services has Mortgage Delinquency & Default Counseling available to all Washingtonians.

Parkview has the on-going need of maintenance of the homes that make up our Affordable Rental Housing Program for adults with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. Ramps, accessible hallways/ rooms, and bathroom facilities that allow them independence are always needed. You can give to any Parkview Program or to their general fund.
