Paul Lambros is the Executive Director of Plymouth Housing Group*, a Seattle based non-profit that develops and operates affordable housing coupled with supportive services for adults and seniors who have experienced homelessness.
Under Paul’s leadership, Plymouth has focused on a “Housing First” model that seeks to lower all possible barriers to housing. Under Housing First, people most in need (many of whom have experienced years of homelessness) are provided with housing before being asked to make any other changes in their lives. Once they have a home, they can begin to address the issues that contributed to their homelessness, such as physical disability, behavioral health disorders, and/or chemical dependency.
Paul oversees the acquisition and development of new projects, which includes securing capital financing through Low Income Housing Tax Credits, State, and local funding. Most Plymouth buildings also receive Federal project-based Section 8 housing subsidy. Housing case management services are supported by federal McKinney grants, as well as City and County programs.
Plymouth celebrated the grand opening of its 14th building in October 2017!
Paul is on the board of the Downtown Seattle Association, working with Seattle business leaders on ways to improve the quality of Seattle’s downtown neighborhoods.
Paul has also served in a leadership role on a variety of committees and associations focusing on ways to address the need for affordable housing in Seattle including: co-chair of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan’s transition team; the Housing Affordability and Livability Advisory Committee (aka HALA); All Home King County; and the Housing Development Consortium of Seattle/King County, whose members work on issues related to funding and policy affecting affordable housing and homelessness. At the state level, Paul is a member of the Policy Advisory Team on Housing. He is frequently asked to speak about nonprofit governance, affordable housing development, and the Housing First model.
*Plymouth Housing Group works to end homelessness and address its causes by preserving,
developing and operating safe, quality, supportive housing and by providing homeless adults with opportunities to stabilize and improve their lives.
