Interfaith Coalition provides emergency and transitional housing for homeless families, shelter for homeless men and women during extreme weather, and support for our marginalized neighbors in Whatcom County.
Holiday Gifts Sponsors Needed! Brighten the holiday season for those who struggle daily with basic needs throughout the year. Join our Holiday Gifts Program and sponsor a family in need. Each family that applies for participation in our program is screened by case managers. These families might be living in Interfaith Family Housing, Dorothy Place or other emergency or transitional shelters, even a motel room, waiting for a chance to get into temporary housing. Because there are families who sign up too late for the program, we are requesting general gifts for these families.
What can you give to someone you don’t know? Gift cards, movie tickets, children’s books and toys are always appreciated. Call us at (360) 734-3983 with questions, ideas and to sign up to spread holiday cheer to homeless families.
Project Warm-Up is Underway! Are you a knitter? Our Project Warm-Up crew creates beautiful and functional hats, scarves and blankets for our neighbors. We distribute these through local social service agencies and our Severe Weather Shelters. Drop off at our office…and if you have yarn you can’t use, we’re happy to share it with others who can put it to good use keeping men, women and children warm during Whatcom winters.
We Have a New Home! Because we’ve outgrown our former office space at First Congregational Church, we are now located at St. James Presbyterian in Fairhavne (910 14th Street, Bellingham). Our phone number remains the same. We are so grateful for the generosity of First Congregational, our friendly home for 30 years, and thankful to St. James for welcoming us to their home.
