The Whatcom Homeless Service Center’s mission is to build
relationships to end homelessness through advocacy,
systems change, and strategic partnerships.
We coordinate many of the housing resources in Whatcom County and have created a centralized and accessible way to link consumers to appropriate services. Our coordinated system refers to an approach which implements a county-wide no wrong door strategy and provides centralized intake, assessment, and referral services for homeless housing. We maintain one Housing Pool for the entire community, through which we can keep up to date records of the housing needs of those seeking housing services. With cross-agency coordination, interim case management, and eligibility information provided via the Housing Pool, we aim to make the most appropriate referrals and improve outcomes for those we serve.
