Impact

We are privileged to have worked with so many amazing community partners on so many life changing projects. The following quotes are a testament to the impact we can have when we work together.


We can’t thank you enough for your support of this project. We are excited to be able to fill the gap in our services to women and children – allowing us to provide support for the whole family, all while continuing to help women become better mothers and giving them the opportunity to start a new life! Thank you for investing in the lives of women and children in our community; your support brings us all the closer to the goal of building a Childcare Center!

Your gift offers hope and promise to people in need. As one dad told us about living in Interfaith Family Housing, “We understand living here is not a fix for the rest of our lives, but it’s a big help in getting us where we want to be. It’s a blessing to have people believe in us.”

When this community is committed to a project, anything is possible. The Bellingham Food Bank was struggling with how to meet the growing needs of those who go hungry in Whatcom County. You joined other community partners to ensure we have the space we need to meet the need. Thank you.
