It has been two years since we opened our house of hospitality (the House of Hope) in Langley, and three months since we opened our year round overnight shelter (The Haven) in Oak Harbor. We continue to work diligently at 'Making homelessness a brief and rare experience in our community.'
I have been webmaster here for the past two years and am taking a leave from this portion of my work with the Whidbey Homeless Coalition. Our newly hired Executive Director, Ursula Roosen-Runge will be at the helm and giving our site a brand new look. I have so enjoyed keeping you, the community, informed of our work. It has been pure joy posting pictures and stories of all that has happened since we first gathered together three years ago to tackle homelessness here on Whidbey Island. We live in a beautiful and caring community here on our island and it makes me proud to be here!
