Winter Haven was a temporary tent community for the homeless in Bellingham and Whatcom County. The project started on January 3rd, 2019 and lasted until April 2019. The site consisted of 20 tents and was located behind City Hall at 210 Lottie Street.
During the three month period that Winter Haven operated, we helped 5 homeless people find permanent housing and provided a stable living situation for 35 people.
