Viking Voices 1/25

Viking Voices showcases student opinions on different issues by asking them different questions. This week we asked students: “How do you think we can help end homelessness in Bellingham?”

“I remember the [communications] department did a food drive to help. Other than that, I don’t know. Western seems kind of isolated from the rest of the community”

“Get involved in pre-existing services around Bellingham that serve the homeless. Or, if there were enough like-minded students at Western who had a desire to help homeless people, they could form their own service.”

“I don’t see that many shelters for homeless people or accessible help for them. So, even if it’s making it more obvious and accessible for them and outreach programs for them, maybe even organizing efforts through Western.  I definitely haven’t seen anything on campus relating to efforts on homelessness outreach.”
