Free fare days are being offered to support Bellingham Whatcom Project Homeless Connect (PHC). PHC is a community event that provides homeless people from throughout Whatcom County with access to medical screening and care, vision screening, dental care, mental health screening, veterans services, legal services, education planning, employment screening and a wide range of other essential services. Food and child care will be provided at the event.
PHC is based on a national model which has been used successfully in more than 170 cities across the United States.
