2nd Annual Bed Race to Help Families Experiencing Homelessness

Round up four friends into a team and join the wacky, fun Bed Race from 2 to 4 pm Sunday, Sept. 30 in Bellingham’s Civic Field parking lot. The second annual Bed Race begins with an informal parade as costumed teams showcase their decorated and newly mobile beds. To learn more about this fun event, check out the Bed Race website. You can also sponsor a team. Lots of laughs and free family fun, with a chance to donate if you wish. Prizes awarded for fastest bed (grease those wheels!), most money raised, best theme, and more. All proceeds benefit Interfaith’s Family Promise.

Family Promise Opens!

Interfaith Coalition’s Family Promise program opened April 2! We are now serving additional children and their parents experiencing homelessness in a partnership with Whatcom County congregations. During the day, families go to the Family Promise Center and work with a case manager to access permanent housing and community resources. In the evenings, host and support congregations offer hospitality, meals and overnight lodging. Since opening day, we’ve brought stability to eight families and watched five graduate with jobs and homes.  

If you are interested in volunteering with Family Promise, please call 360-734-3983.
