Street Connect is designed to reach out to people who are chronically homeless. The Street Connect team will talk and pray with people who are homeless and hand out needed items, such as socks, sandwiches, water bottles, blankets, toiletries, etc. Volunteers get to reach out, build trust, hand out food and helpful items, and show our neighbors who are homeless that we care about them.
Shower Connect gives people who are homeless access to warm showers. It has two separate units, each with a shower, toilet, and sink. Hygiene supplies and towels are provided.
The Shower Connect trailer is located at the Salvation Army’s Birchwood Location (1515 Birchwood Avenue, Bellingham) on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We are pleased to partner with Opportunity Council’s Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) and the Salvation Army of Bellingham. For more information or to request ADA accommodations, please call the HOT Team at (360) 312 – 3717 and press 1 to be connected.
