Sunrise Services Explains Proposed Enhanced Services Facility on Evergreen Way

June 21, 2017


At an open house Wednesday Sunrise Services, the agency that plans to manage and operate an Enhanced Services Facility on Evergreen Way next to Popeye’s Chicken in Everett provided information for any interested community members. In addition to Sunrise Services, representatives from the State Department of Social and Health Services and the project developer were also on hand to answer questions.


It’s a unique project with restaurant-retail-office space on the first floor and an assisted living facility on the second floor.

The proposed facility is in the early stages of a permitting process with the City of Everett. It is a multi-use project with retail-restaurant-office space available on the main floor and a 16 room assisted living facility above.

The Enhanced Services Facility portion of the building will have staff on hand 24 hours a day 7 days a week including a nurse and caregivers. In addition a mental health professional will be onsite daily. The facility is not low barrier housing. No drugs or alcohol are allowed and residents come via discharge from a psychiatric hospital. While no longer considered to have to be hospitalized they still require specialized support and care. This is not a treatment facility but assisted living for those with mental health support needs.
