HomesNow! Not Later

HomesNow! is a Bellingham-based nonprofit with the goal of “ending homelessness, one person at a time.” HomesNow! has no paid staff, is made up entirely of volunteers, and private donations are essential to advancing its mission. 

HomesNow! supports the ‘housing first’ model, advocating for safe, clean, accessible housing options. Winter Haven, Safe Haven and Unity Village have been successful at helping people find stability and connecting them to needed services. During the winter season, HomesNow! coordinates with a local church and volunteers from the community to manage an emergency shelter providing for up to 40 people.

The CBC is dedicated to providing free boating opportunities for folks vulnerable to homelessness as we believe outdoor recreation must be available to all



“Our HomesNow Kayakers from our villages, Swift Haven and Unity, want to thank you for the beautiful evenings kayaking on the water. Your generosity of time and equipment made for wonderful first-time experiences for folks in our community.”
