Why we build
In the United States 18% of households earn wages at poverty level or below. 24% are struggling to make ends meet, falling between poverty wages and the basic cost of living. In Whatcom County, 42% earn less then the basic cost of living. Over 82,000 County residents cannot afford adequate shelter.
What we're building
- The first 12 units of an eventual 52-unit complex, the Telegraph Townhome Project is being built in partnership with the Kulshan Community Land Trust (KulshanCLT) and Whatcon Community Foundation. 8 units were completed in 2020, and 4 more are set to be completed in 2021.
- A second single-family home in beautiful Sudden Valley.
With several more partner homebuyers doing their work for their pre-construction requirements, we’ll look forward to adding to this list!
