Fabulous LGBTQ+ HQ!
The LGBTQ+ community can make a home here
We moved into this historic and conveniently located building in April of 2017 after signing a "Lease to Own" agreement with the current owner. Located at 112 State Ave NE in downtown Olympia, it is a two-story building with a total of 4400 square feet.
We love it! Stonewall Youth currently inhabits the entire first floor, which is on street-level. It is ADA accessible and consists of a large main room with many lovely windows, two offices, two bathrooms, and a small kitchen. The main room has ample space for our library, our music and art programs, a computer area, and a large cozy area that is sort of the "living room" space where youth can hang out.
The second floor has 11 offices currently rented by an array of local artists, therapists, and other businesses. Once we purchase the building, folks can continue renting offices (which will help us pay our mortgage), though we hope to do a major renovation of the upstairs within a few years to make it ADA accessible and more available to other local LGBTQ+ and social justice organizations for office and .meeting space.
Built in 1910, the building is located less than a block from the Olympia Transit Center and within a few blocks of the Olympia Community Center, Percival Landing, and a host of downtown businesses.
We are negotiating a Purchase and Sale Agreement with the owner with a purchase price of $415,000, which we aim to finalize by the end of November. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
