The Humanitas Ministry provides information on local resources and limited financial assistance to people in need. We work in conjunction with the Opportunity Council and other alms ministries in the Bellingham area offering limited assistance to residents of Whatcom county.
What Kind of Help?
We work with local vendors and suppliers who accept our vouchers for purchases. Typical requests may include a monthly bus pass, groceries, gasoline, camping gear, assistance with utilities, or other necessities by arrangement with the vendor. No cash is involved, and our typical amount offered per adult is $40.00 or less.
How Does It Work?
Clients may apply for assistance once every twelve months, with a limit of two requests per household. You may do so by calling our direct line at
or by completing the form below. We will then contact you by phone to discuss the details of your request. No aid is given until we have spoken with you.
Note that our assistance is intended to help only those in deep financial need.
Is My Information Safe?
All of the information you give us is used strictly in-house to track our expenditures. It is never shared nor disseminated in any way outside our organization.
