We are pleased to announce that we will be opening our Drop-In Resource Center on August 1, 2023. It will be located at the Salem Lutheran Church, next to the Skagit Valley Family YMCA in Mount Vernon. The center will be available for all adults over 18 from 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.
The Resource Center provides a secure sanctuary from the harshness of winter and the scorching heat of summer, offering a supportive environment to tackle the hardships of unstable housing. Our comprehensive services enable you to access crucial resources, engage in job searches, indulge in creative crafts, connect with fellow individuals, and explore an array of opportunities.
