YWCA Bellingham offers three different housing programs for women experiencing homelessness: 

  • Emergency Shelter

  • Senior housing (specifically for women ages 55+)

  • Supported rental housing

These programs provide women a safe home with intensive case management services to help them get the skills and services they need to live a fulfilling, independent life. 

Steps to apply for housing:

YWCA Bellingham is part if the Whatcom County Coordinated Entry Program. You can apply for that program at the YWCA or at the Whatcom Homeless Service Center. We take referrals through the Whatcom Homeless Service Center within the Opportunity Council. Go to either location in person to fill out an application, or call them for more information.
