Homeless in Whatcom County (part 3) from ENW with Deb Slater on Vimeo.
Hope House Multi-Service Center is a collaborative effort between CCS and the Catholic parishes of Bellingham, providing distinct programs for Whatcom County. Fifty-nine social service agencies throughout the county issue vouchers for individuals and families to “shop” free of charge at designated times. Hope House is staffed by volunteers and is supported by the generosity of the community. Click here to read more about Hope House.
Sharing Shop The Sharing Shop is a new and used clothing and small house wares redistribution center without cost to people in need.
Above and Beyond Shop The Above and Beyond Shop provides hygiene, personal care, diapers, school supplies, lightbulbs, soaps and supplies which cannot be purchased with food stamps.
The Pantry The Pantry provides emergency food supplies for those in need during the times when the Bellingham Food Bank is not open.
Street Ministry The Street Ministry goes out to where the homeless are living under bridges, in the woods, in cars on the street offering food, comfort, and warmth, wherever the homeless are located. Volunteers distribute sack lunches, socks, gloves, pants, underwear, sleeping bags, personal hygiene items, flashlights, and other needed items.
