Young and homeless in Bellingham.
Of the 700+ people unsheltered on any given day in Bellingham, 23% are under 18; 13% between 16-24. More than 40% of youth report a mental health disability; less than 1% have been released from juvenile detention.
How will the church be involved with Northwest Youth Services or future tenants?
This is a secular project. The church’s role is limited to providing fabulous, rent-free space to Northwest Youth Services, or, should the time come when they no longer need the space, another nonprofit serving our community with justice work. No religion, just space.
