HOUSING IN OR NEAR SEATTLE?

 Our Columbia family is in need of generously affordable housing in or near Seattle as we begin urgent treatment for life-threatening illness for our first-grader. We can afford $1000-1200/month and we are looking for a furnished 1-bedroom house or apartment in Seattle or as far north as Everett, for 6+ months. We cannot have shared accommodation for medical reasons. Any leads on housing are appreciated. Thank you, neighbors.  ~  Lauren Beven, Monroe Street, laurenaries@hotmail.com

DONATIONS?

If you have some spare money lying around, I consider these to be excellent places to donate. If you don’t have spare money, but have a little spare time, most of them can use volunteers. And if you happen to have neither at the moment, you still might enjoy seeing some of the cool things our neighbors are doing to make our community a better place.

ROAD2HOME

It’s raining, the wind is blowing, and temperatures outside are dropping. Covid-19 is spreading unchecked around the world, across our country, and here at home in Whatcom County. During times like these, we all appreciate having a place to be safe, warm, dry and comfortable.

Unfortunately, right now over 200 unsheltered people in Whatcom County are sleeping outside or in cars with no safe place to go, with only a wet sleeping bag or a tarp strung over a shopping cart to call home. For others, home is a broken-down camper or space in a backyard shed.

Your support is needed right now to help address this crisis. Your donation to Road2Home will support a new Transitional Housing Community that will provide each resident with a home, along with personalized assistance in accessing community-based services. This will give our residents security and stability to get back on their feet. Building is expected to start next year. 

Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, any private individual contributions made to Road2Home before January 16 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $20,000.  Please take this opportunity to have your gift doubled!

MAKERSPACE

The Bellingham Makerspace has been doing great things for our community and they now need our help. Check out all they’ve done this last year: https://bellinghammakerspace.org/

And then donate! ~ Harriet Holmgren, 2212 Victor Street

WHATCOM DISPUTE RESOLUTION CENTER

Thousands of individuals currently face eviction from their homes. Hundreds of our friends are struggling to co-parent their children who so badly need stability and comfort. And employers, workers, and neighbors alike are at odds as mounting anxiety takes a toll. Amidst all of this challenge and concern, the WDRC is listening deeply, offering support, and affecting positive change. The WDRC was created for moments just like this. whatcomdrc.org

FIREHOUSE PERFORMING ARTS & EVENTS CENTER Needs your tax deductible donation. Firehouse now has a non-profit 501 (c)(3) fiscal sponsor — Allied Arts Foundation, Seattle. This means donations are super easy, and will help Firehouse continue to support the arts by recording your favorite live performances for viewing on big screen or small, anytime, from anywhere.  https://secure.givelively.org/donate/allied-arts-foundation-seattle/firehouse-arts-events-center

IN NEED OF A NANNY

We have a 3, going on 4, month old baby girl and are in need of some in-home help during the weekdays – we both work full-time from home but need some support while the little one is awake! Our needs are currently flexible, just looking for the right fit. Overall looking for someone roughly 20 hours a week so we can get some focused work done! Would require that the caregiver wear a mask during this damn pandemic. Please email Courtney Rambo at corarambo@gmail.com for details. Thank you kindly!

Michael Peter Smith wrote a love song to his fifth grade teacher in Catholic school. It brings me sweet tears every time.
