Many people who are concerned about homelessness have never experienced it for themselves. We often hear assumptions about how people end up homeless. Some wonder what the experiences of people who’ve gotten out of homelessness can tell us. This is your chance to meet some of our neighbors who have survived homelessness here in Whatcom County, and ask your own questions. This will be an intimate community conversation where all are welcome to join, listen, and learn without judgement.

This moderated discussion will be followed by dessert and an opportunity to continue the conversation informally.

Space is limited, so please RSVP only if you can commit to attending.
