OUR EVICTION PREVENTION PROGRAM IS CLOSED and will not reopen until late fall.

About the Program

Byrd Barr Place is committed to preventing homelessness in Seattle. We can help you avoid eviction with temporary rental assistance or connect you to housing resources. We partner with many local housing organizations offering temporary, transitional, and permanent affordable housing.

About the program

If you have fallen behind on your rent and are facing eviction, we may be able to help. People eligible for our Energy Assistance Program may also qualify for our Rental Assistance Program.


Are you eligible?

To find out if you are eligible, please call 206-812-4940 to speak with a Byrd Barr Place representative.
