About Us

Welcome

The Beacon Hill Council (BHC) of Seattle is an  all-volunteer community organization. Our mission is to advocate for a welcoming, diverse and healthy Beacon Hill community neighborhood. See Bylaws.

Our geographic boundaries include: to the north, Interstate 90; to the west, Interstate 5; to the south, S Perry Street; and to the east, Rainier Avenue South and Martin Luther King Jr. Way South. 

We are community builders.

We provide:

  • Opportunities for our residents, business persons and property owners to improve our community, 

  • Hold open forums to discuss what is going on in our community, issues and solutions, 

  • Connect with groups, public, non-profit and for-profit agencies to work together to solve issues and/or make improvements.
