HomesNOW! Not Later is a group of volunteers working together to provide homes and shelter for the homeless in Bellingham and Whatcom County. Click here to check out our Events.

A Call to Action

HomesNOW! has a plan that is very simple. The plan is just to go from Point A to Point B. Build tiny homes and start putting people in them right away.

What we need is to raise money for the first 2 homes. We need about $5000, not much when you consider that this is going to take two people off the streets and reduce the number of homeless in Whatcom County.

 

IF YOU WANT TO BECOME A REALITY, THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO HELP.

We are a 501c3 so your donations are tax deductible.

This man worked his entire life only to be thrown on the streets like a piece of garbage. Pathetic! #directdemocracy youtu.be/oM8u4ZK0qjw

This man is getting enough income to live decently in Arkansas or Kansas. $950/mo is no princely sum and would still require food banks and so forth but hanging around in SoCal with a guaranteed (but insufficient for the area) income is insane. If your goal is to not be homeless - heading to somewhere like Hollywood or Manhattan on a low fixed income is self-defeating.

Short History of Public Housing in the United States (1930's - Present)
In 2018 in the United States, homelessness and poverty have been increasing over the years. Wages remain low or flat for most people, cost of living is increasing, rents are skyrocketing as well as property values due to a speculative market on real estate and land.

At the same time federal funding for public non-profit housing development is weak. This has all added up to what we see in the country today with the lack of affordable housing. When housing isn't available or affordable, people fall through the cracks, and this leads to increased homelessness.

To successfully solve this problem today requires us to first look back at the history of public housing in the US to see how we got to this point and present some examples of housing models which might be achievable under current legal and systemic constraints.

Dear County Council:
All the rules can be bypassed by Jack Louws signing a State of Emergency. Land use, building codes, residence requirement. All of them.
I did also find out that the parking behind the Courthouse (the sunken down one) is owned by the county. I have a few other options of private properties that are already being used by those without homes to lease the land to the county and then us. All 3 are on the outskirts of the city (on Marine Drive is some property and on NW is a bank owned property and a non-functioning business with a large fenced in backyard).
Maybe those can be locations? Please share with anyone on the council interested. I will also write.

From the 16th of April 2018, it will officially be a crime for a poor/homeless person to ask for help or money from people they see on the street. Should it really be a crime to have no money? no home?? These people just need a hand up, a bit of compassion and understanding and some help ffs!

I anticipated grading the city council members on their efforts to help the homeless living on the streets. I was all set to name them and have Roxanne admonish me for directing comment to individual members but because we have made some promise I did not proceed. We shall see our new 3 portapotties and 3 dumpsters around town open 24/7 with places to park vehicles being lived in and based on that I will decide where to use my energy.
On Tiny Homes land? On safe camping sites? On getting laundry vouchers? Getting a good place to send mail? Getting bus passes again for those without homes? So much to do.

The 100% "renewable energy" they keep talking about it is a total scam. It tricks you into thinking its good for the enviroment, but it's a scheme that actually keeps big polluting corporations in business, while our small businesses have to shut down because they can't afford to reduce their carbon footprint while these big vampire corps can buy their way out. The biggest polluters can set up a wind farm, have african farmers or prisoners plant trees to generate credits to buy their way out. There's a whole market created for it. Don't be duped! Look more into "carbon offsets" and "renewable energy credits". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renewable_Energy_Certificate_(United_States) www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkXC7eSXGwg&t=249s

Today's news:
Bellingham Police and Whatcom County Sheriff's Detectives are investigating the death of a 49-year-old male shortly after midnight this morning.

Bellingham Police responded to a 911 call for assistance at the Drop In Center located at 1013 W. Holly Street. Initial information gathered was that there was a male, possibly under the influence of a drug, acting paranoid and exhibiting unstable behavior.

Preliminary review of the Officer's body cameras shows the individual was having a mental health/drug episode but was responding to the Officer's use of verbal and de-escalation skills to safely take him into custody. Once in custody, however, he became unresponsive, and even though he was attended to by officers and on-scene medics, he died shortly after arriving at the hospital. The medical examiner's investigation will ultimately determine the cause of the individual's death. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, March 20. Investigators are currently working to positively identify the male.

“The loss of life is always tragic," said Bellingham Police Chief David Doll. “Our condolences will go out to the family once next of kin are identified."

The Whatcom County Sheriff's Office is assisting with the investigation, as it is routine practice to include outside investigators when an in-custody death is involved. Body worn camera footage will be released when the male's name is released.

Due to scheduling issues, March Homeless Summit will not take place. The next one will be on the 14th of April, we think.
Since there will be no clothing/gear event this month, I will do my best to seek out people who may need stuff such as dropping by the Drop-in-center every few days.
If you need anything specifically, let me know and I will do my best to get it to you. This is about survival.

We could use the following donations please:
Gloves (we have none at this moment)
Warm socks
Tents
Sleeping bags
Hoodies (large, extra large and extra extra large)
blankets
sweatpants (large, extra and extra extra large)

Thanks as always for everyones support.

Cornwall park was intially used for people camping and working in the mines.
I think a portion of that park should be designated again to those camping (and car parking).
That park has a lot of room, lots of entrances and lots of parking. Seems like an ideal place to help out those without a home.

HomesNow. Not Later. updated their cover photo. ...

Just in case we missed saying this:
HomesNow is a fairly new organization in the community and we want to note that there are a lot of great organizations and programs for the homeless in Bellingham and we appreciate all that you do.

As you all know, we have identified a huge gap in services that is too big to go unreported. That gap includes the people living outside (not using the Mission). Those people, living in tents, doorways, cars, RVs, benches and under trees deserve basic respect and dignity even though they do not have an address.

Please join us in advocating for safe tent sites, essentials such as toilets/water/dumpsters and storage. We need to all work together to make sure our city and county provides basic services to all of the community, not just those in homes.

PLEASE call the mayor, call the councils and ask them to identify land for people to safely camp. Without and people will be breaking the law, just because they do not have 4 walls and a roof.

Re:
Death of TJ (Thomas Joseph) Duffy. Born 8/1/83) Died of exposure on Jan 20 2018
There is a silver lining to us posting about TJ's death on Facebook. His sons did not know about his grandparents in Oklahoma and thanks to us, they now have more grandparents to love them and keep them connected with their dad.
TJ's memorial service is on Tuesday Feb 6th at 3:00 at the First Baptist Church on 110 Flora Street, Bellingham.
His step-parents live in OK and if anyone has a video camera to record or live stream the service, they would be appreciative.

Attending these in an unshowy way seems like an honorable thing for Homes Now and people who care about the homeless to do!!
