What happened to the people who were living 910 W. Holly building?

We’ve done some shuffling! In early 2021, the Mission’s administrative office moved out of the New Life Center building at 923 W. Holly Street (across the street from the main Mission building) into a separate office located in downtown Bellingham. This gave us time to renovate the New Life Center building for the Ascent Recovery Program (which houses up to 35 men at a time) to move in.

In spring of 2022, the Ascent Recovery Program moved into the renovated New Life Center, leaving the main Mission building vacant and ready to be prepared for demolition.

Thanks to a Partnership with PeaceHealth, our Kitchen and food services were also relocated. Our kitchen is currently near the hospital at 3333 Squalicum Parkway, enabling us to continue serving and distributing 650-plus meals a day during this time of transition.
