Through one-to-one tutoring, small group classes and in-class support, they reach over 900 learners each year and partner with businesses, colleges, libraries, churches and school districts to address local needs. WLC brings neighbors together to help neighbors, creating social capital and working towards a healthier community for all.

The Chrysalis, a locally owned hotel, spa and restaurant on Fairhaven’s waterfront, has been giving one percent of monthly spa revenues to a local non-profit since February of 2017, now totaling over $27,000.

Women Sharing Hope, an all volunteer organization that has stepped up to fill need requests when other Whatcom County charities are unable to, due to diminishing funds and increased demand, will be April’s recipient.
