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.
We are grateful to Northwest Chevrolet who donated the van and covered the expense of designing and wrapping it!
Shower Connect gives people who are homeless access to warm showers. It has two separate units, each with a shower, toilet, and sink. Shower Connect runs four days a week at different locations around Bellingham. Since starting in December, over 360 showers have been provided! Showers are available for all ages and towels, shampoo, conditioner, and soap are provided.
