Making Homelessness a Brief and Rare Experience in our Community
WHO ARE WE?
The Whidbey Homeless Coalition is a non-profit (501c3) started by neighbors including those who are or have experienced homelessness, local activists and advocates, community-based and faith-based organizations, and others committed to preventing and abating homelessness on Whidbey Island, while protecting each individual's civil rights and filling their immediate needs.
CAN YOU HELP?
We can only do our work with your help. We need you.
Please give of your time by mentoring a House of Hope guest, helping out on our Facilities Team, or volunteering a night at the Haven.
Check out our "current needs" for the Haven and the House of Hope. And remember we can always use working cars for guests and 5th wheelers or RVs for housing
Thank you for your generous support during GiveBIG 2018! We collectively raised over $4,000. Any amount, small or large, helps us to serve more people and help them move out of homelessness to permanent housing.
Changes at the Haven: we are very sorry to see our Haven Manager, Shawna Pinder leaving as well as Alex Heape a Shelter Assistant. We wish them well and thank them for all they have done for the Haven and its guests.
We are promoting DeAnna Furman to Assistant Manager and we are hiring. If you have any interest in working as a Shelter Assistant or becoming the Haven Manager or know someone who might please check out the job postings here.
