Mercy Housing x Sterling Meadows
Sterling Meadows Farm & Fish Worker Community Apartments is a Mercy Housing project located in North Bellingham. Mercy Housing is redefining affordable, low-income housing as a national nonprofit organization that is working to build a more humane world. Specifically, Sterling Meadows provides affordable housing for local families who work in agriculture and fisheries industries, many of whom are primarily Spanish-speaking.
This season, Director of Education & Outreach Sara Welsh, with the help of our Marine Science Interns, began hosting a weekly program at Sterling Meadows to engage the community’s kids in environmental and marine learning. Kids were then invited to attend a week-long summer camp to experience Bellingham Bay! We look forward to expanding this program and reaching even more underserved youth in Bellingham.
