Welcome to the Bryant Neighborhood

The Bryant Neighborhood is a beautiful and diverse residential neighborhood with a variety of pressing needs. Located in the northwest corner of Tacoma's Hilltop, the Bryant Neighborhood accounts for approximately 25 square blocks, and includes facilities like its namesake, Bryant Montessori, along with the Salvation Army's emergency housing facility and Trinity Presbyterian Church. A small number of businesses also make their home in the Bryant Neighborhood. Within the Bryant Neighborhood, 44% of homes are owner-occupied, while the median household income is $33,966. 33% of Bryant Neighborhood residents are living below the poverty line, and 16% of residents are unemployed. Living inside the Bryant Montessori catchment area there are currently 170 students who qualify for free and reduced lunch.

Trinity’s 30-year partnership with Bryant is a legacy that continues to help Bryant students and their families every day of the week. I could not be more grateful for Trinity’s presence here in our Bryant Neighborhood and the good work that happens because of their presence and partnership with Bryant.
