We are 44 member congregations and the community working for healthcare and homes for all. Our housing keeps homeless families together.
Severe Weather Shelters provide refuge for people who stay outside until the weather is too harsh.
We distribute 3,000 coats annually throughout the county and founded the Interfaith Community Health Center.
We are of the community, for the community.
to Make a Difference
Interfaith Coalition has opportunities for you to make a difference in the lives of your Whatcom County neighbors. This summer they could use help doing exterior maintenance and repairs on their houses and would welcome with things like: painting, tree/brush trimming, mowing, general carpentry, etc. Skilled or not skilled – you can help! Knitters can begin making hats and scarves for Project Warm Up to distribute this winter, or donate yarn for others to do so.
Kids Need Books distributes books to low-income families in Bellingham and the county, and your donations of new or gently-used kids’ books will help many kids avoid the “summer learning slide.” Call Interfaith at 734-3983, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info to donate, volunteer, or learn more.
In addition, Interfaith helps collect items for Project Homeless Connect, a community one-day event in Bellingham, that brings immediate access to services for the homeless. Giveaway items needed are: hygiene items, new socks and underwear, blankets, sleeping bags, tarps, tents, backpacks, shoes, towels, diapers, baby wipes and formula. To volunteer, contact the Whatcom Volunteer Center at 734-3055.
