Housing is becoming more difficult to find, and an increasing number of our neighbors are experiencing homelessness. 

What’s being done to address these issues? And what can we all do to help? 

Whatever your position in the community, you can be part of the solution.

Join a conversation about the affordable housing and homelessness crisis in Skagit County this October.

Several nonprofit partners will be present to share more about their efforts to provide housing and services in our community. Keynote speakers include Tedd Kelleher from the Department of Commerce and Margaret Morales from Sightline Institute. Attendees are welcome to attend all or a portion of the event.
