Imagine being 14 with no family...
...no home, no place to sleep or bathe. You are unsure of your next meal. 

You have no clean clothes, no money for school supplies or basic toiletries. 

However, in spite of sleeping on a neighbor's couch, in a tent in the woods, in a friend's car or on a mattress under an overpass, you want to complete your education.

These are actual stories from Bellingham student files. Over 100 Bellingham teens 
face these tragic conditions every day.



These children, identified as unaccompanied homeless teenagers, do not live with a parent or guardian but are enrolled in the Bellingham School District. Due to their age and because they have no parent or guardian, they are not eligible for many community services.
 

The Bellingham Giving Circle is a local non-profit with a mission to support the needs of these homeless kids in order for them to stay in school.
