What We Do

Since 1907, YWCA Bellingham has offered safe housing for women. Our emergency housing, permanent supportive housing, and senior housing programs are available for single adult women in Whatcom County. These programs are supported through a combination of resident program fees, grants from public and private sources, and other community contributions.

Women come to us for many different reasons, but the goal for each is the same: YWCA Bellingham aims to give women a safe, supportive place to stay while connecting them with the appropriate resources they need to ultimately become self-supporting. The YWCA Larrabee Residence Program provides housing for up to 41 women in our historic landmark building at Forest and Maple Streets in Bellingham.
