Interfaith Coalition provides emergency and transitional housing for homeless families and support for our marginalized neighbors in Whatcom County.


Jenn's Story


Interfaith Annual Hope Meeting

Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 7 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church Grace Center, 119 Texas Street in in Bellingham

Everyone is invited! Please join Interfaith Coalition for a meaningful evening of fellowship, inspiration and opportunity. Hear from volunteers and families who share stories of compassion and hope. Learn how you can help us serve additional homeless families through a new program, Family Promise. Be part of an active and caring community of individuals and congregations dedicated to our neighbors in need. We’ll have refreshments and appreciation for being our partners in change.

One featured speaker will be Melissa Swanberg.  Melissa and her family stayed at the Skagit Family Promise program and she is now giving back by being one of the volunteers with this program. She will share her experiences as both a guest and volunteer.

Come and be inspired and share in the warmth as we take a moment to look at all we have done together, and how we continue to surround each other, and our neighbors, with support, compassion, and caring.
