See King 5 News’ report on our transitional home in Ferndale here!
When the City of Ferndale acquired a house sitting on land that would be needed for long-term transportation projects, it reached out to Interfaith Coalition to offer the home in the short term to the coalition’s housing program. The City worked with us when we created Our House and knew of our success in helping families achieve self-sufficiency. The City shares one of our goals: to keep families in their hometown and children in the same schools.
Volunteers from Interfaith Coalition congregations and other supporters have refurbished the home, and it welcomed its first family in Spring 2017.
This new home provides transitional housing to a family who will live there for about one year at a reduced rental rate and receive case management from Interfaith Coalition, with the goal of moving into their own home after they gain stability.
Now Interfaith Coalition has four units of housing in the Ferndale area for struggling families: two that are short-term emergency units and two that are transitional.
