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.

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.

So will Homes Now be on the agenda at the next meeting "Homeless Strategies Workgroup" meeting? Looks like it's scheduled for Thursday, February 22, 2018 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the City of Bellingham Mayor's Board Room located at 210 Lottie Street in Bellingham. Is this open to the public and can we organize to be there? I have work at that time but I can try and make arrangements so I can participate!

So excited today I get to go watch our first house of our pilot project being built with the person that will be the one moving in it when we set up the pilot project. Can't thank Heritage General Building contractors enough

HomesNow. Not Later. added an event.

Help build our Tiny Home Pilot Project

It is truely the case that 1 person can make a difference.

Due to the incredible generousity of Heritage Builders, we can keep the cost of each Tiny Home to about $2000.
This means that YOU CAN ACTUALLY BUY A HOME FOR A PERSON.
For a donation of $2000 we will get a beautiful plaque made with whatever you would like said on it. Options can be anything but ones I have thought of:
In memory of ______.Dedicated to ______. In honor of ______.

It is rare that just $2000 can build a home but our simple design and help from Heritage makes it happen.
Of course any additional donations would be going to the cost of the Service Building, which is the biggest ticket item.
THANKS and please share with anyone who want to make a major difference in a person's life.
And a special thanks to Heritage Builders who on top of all the work they are doing, they also are building our first home for free.
Home #1 Donor: Heritage Builders

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT At the beginning of this week I was contacted by Jay Prather owner of Heritage General Building Contractors that he would like to have a sit down with us at HomesNOW Not Later. Well today we meet with Jay and talked about our vision and he talked about what he does. We came to an agreement that his company is going to build our first tiny home project all of it at cost. Monday he is going to start building the first Tiny Home. This is huge for us so now everything will be built to code and everything. I want to Thank Jay Prather for reaching out to us and agreeing to helping us with our first tiny pilot project. We will have videos and pictures to come as they build the first home. After talking with Jay we are going to need to raise 25,000 dollar for the complete project which will be 6 10x10 tiny homes with electric and one service building with kitchen showers, toilets and laundry machines 12x26. We are so happy to have this all in place and now we are hoping the county will keep working with us in the manner they have so far. Again Thank you Heritage General Building Contractors for stepping up and caring Please go to their Facebook page and show them some love www.facebook.com/heritagegbc/

I don't say this enough I cant thank you enough for all the support you all have given to HomesNOW Not Later. Without you none of this would be possible. We always say it is about helping the homeless Nothing more nothing less. None of us get paid or gain anything personally from what we do. All we want to do is help the homeless no hidden agenda or motive. We believe if you give the homeless Love,Respect and Dignity no matter what's going on in their lives that is a big gift in itself. We have to remember they are not failures at all the system has failed them. All we at HomesNOW Not Later want to do is level the playing field for them and listen to what THEY WANT AND WHAT THEY NEED and try to get it for them without questions or expectations just because it is the right thing to do. We are all in this together. " IF NOT US THEN WHO, IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN"

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.
