About Us

A vision built on experience and expertise

CIRC was created by bringing together the strength of three Puget Sound nonprofits. Our goal is to do a better job of creating homes and communities that provide sustainable housing and services for seniors and families.

The Community Life Foundation (CLF), Downtown Action to Save Housing (DASH), and Community Management Partners (CMP) joined forces in 2021 to create CIRC. CLF and DASH have been longtime leaders in affordable housing in the Puget Sound area and CMP is a property management company.

Each component brings different experiences and expertise to the new organization, making CIRC uniquely positioned to provide both housing and services to a wide range of residents and communities.

CIRC is also affiliated with Transforming Age. Headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, Transforming Age is a leading nonprofit organization committed to improving the lives of older adults by integrating housing, community services, technology, philanthropy, and partnerships. CIRC serves as the affordable housing arm of Transforming Age.
