About Vincent House
Providence Vincent House is a high-quality HUD-subsidized apartment building for seniors age 62 years and older. Located in downtown Seattle next to the historic Pike Place Market, some of our apartments have stunning views of Elliot Bay and the Puget Sound. When you walk out our front door you are merely steps away from the world famous Pike Place Market, shopping, coffee shops, restaurants, museums and Victor Steinbrueck Park.
In addition to providing residents with an affordable place to call home, we offer services coordination and help our residents identify and access community resources. Providence Vincent House has a high staff-to-tenant ratio to make sure all of our residents get the support they need to remain independent.
“This is the best place because you are in the heart of the city.” –Providence Vincent House Resident

There is no charge to applicants for running the report, and the report is usable only for properties owned and managed by Providence. For information about our screening criteria, refer to the Tenant Selection Plan. If you have completed a comprehensive reusable tenant screening report at another property, you may choose to share that with us, but you are not required to do so.
Please review the Tenant Selection Plan for further eligibility requirements that may impact eligibility for housing.
These three documents provide important information to you about living in subsidized housing. We encourage you to review them both before completing your application.
The Tenant Selection Plan provides further detail about eligibility, application/verification procedures, screening criteria, waitlist order, unit occupancy standards, reasonable accommodations, and more.
