HomeWord Bound

"HomeWord Bound" is Community Partners for Affordable Housing's signature fundraising event. Each year we host renowned Northwest authors who share with us insights into their work. The event includes dinner, a silent auction, book sales and author book signings.

Proceeds from this event benefit CPAH and help support our resident programs such as Summer Youth Program, After School Program and Community Building.

CPAH would like to thank the businesses, organizations and attendees who have generously supported this event for the past fourteen years. We would especially like to thank our presenting sponsor, Chase (Washington Mutual), who has been with us since the inception of this event.
