    The Lighthouse Mission

    The Lighthouse Mission

    Drive down West Holly Street in old town Bellingham and on any given day and there’s a good possibility you’ll see a number of homeless people standing outside. These people are there because that’s where the Lighthouse Mission is. My name is Keith Mader and in this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor we speak with Hans Erchinger-Davis, the Executive Director for The Lighthouse Mission. We’ll discuss a number of things including what the mission is doing to help, why there are so many homeless people in Bellingham, how you can get involved, plus what he suggests you do for panhandlers you see on the side of the road.
     
    Since 1923, Lighthouse Mission Ministries has provided shelter, meals, and compassionate services to men, women, and children of Whatcom County in need – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Lighthouse Mission aims to be a consistent friend to people in homelessness. This is done through four distinct programs that come alongside people, wherever they are, to offer hope, give dignity, serve, and support as they undertake the difficult work of leaving homelessness behind.

    Whatcom Historical Society

    Whatcom Historical Society

    The United States as a country is relatively young and the West Coast is even younger. Still, there's a lot of history in this area that most people don't know about. For example, did you know that there used to be skirmishes on what is now the US Canadian border between the Russian and the British? Or did you know that there was a gold rush in Canada just north of here? On this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor we sit down with Wes Gannaway, the President of the Whatcom Historical Society.

    Growing Veterans

    Growing Veterans

    In the military, you’re a part of a tribe.
    You have a community, a clear mission, and a purpose.
    When you come home, everything changes. This tribe is gone, and you must search for your sense of purpose again.
    Many veterans, even many years, even decades after leaving the military, suffer from depression, isolation, and alcoholism because of this.
    Growing Veterans is a non-profit that seeks to do something about this issue in an unconventional way.
    On this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor, we speak with Sean Dalgarn, the Communication and Outreach Manager for Growing Veterans.

    If you’ve ever wanted to do something you’d never done before, it can feel intimidating- especially if you don’t see anyone doing it that looks like you. There’s a non-profit in Bellingham that was formed around this idea. They created programs that welcome women to the world of outdoor recreation and extreme sports. On this episode of Neighbor to Neighbor, we speak with Kari Humphreys, a Co-Founder of the non-profit, Shifting Gears.
