Stable housing is the foundation upon which people build and improve their lives.
The Human Services Housing Program provides opportunities in the community to create safe affordable housing. Together with public and private partners and with the Whatcom County Coalition to End Homelessness, we work to reduce and ultimately end homelessness in our community.
The Housing Program is funded with local document recording fees, grants from Washington State Department of Commerce, and local veteran and mental health funds dedicated to homeless housing assistance.
