About Us

AN ADVOCATE AND EVENT VENUE FOR BALLARD’S SUNSET HILL

SHCA is one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhood associations–both a voice for issues that affect Sunset Hill and a hub for activities. It was formed in 1922 and in 1929 members purchased land and built the two-story Clubhouse to provide the residents and children of Sunset Hill with a hall for community activities.

We are your neighbors. We are volunteers who live in Sunset Hill and enjoy community involvement and advocacy.

Our unique Arts & Crafts-style clubhouse, built in the late 1920s, lets local businesses and organizations host all kinds of classes, workshops, and events. An entry fee may be charged to aid in the upkeep of our historic clubhouse, though many public forums are free and membership entitles you to discounts on some events.

Join, Volunteer or Rent the Clubhouse

Anyone may join SHCA and get member discounts on some events. A volunteer board of directors keeps the organization running. If you have interest in joining the board, fill out the Membership and Board Interest Form.

Anyone may rent the Sunset Hill Community clubhouse. The upstairs hall, in particular, is a light-filled space with enhanced acoustics for weddings, celebrations of all types, musical concerts, etc. Rental services for the SHCA facility are provided through the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA).  Please direct your rental inquiries by email, phone or by filling out and submitting the rental inquiry form.

We are an inclusive nonprofit organization and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship, gender, gender expression, religion, creed, ability or age.
