PORT HADLOCK - Bayside Housing Services, a temporary housing program that provides short-term housing to those in need, recently completed their first successful fundraising drive on October 2nd. $65,000 was raised all together; $35,000 being raised by donation plus a $30,000 match pool.
After sitting empty for years, the Old Alcohol Plant was a great choice to be used for temporary housing as well as a community gathering place.
BHS rents one floor of the historic building to be used for this transitional housing model. The model has been used in other areas of the country and has worked well giving people the opportunity to transition out of homelessness and into permanent housing. Bayside’s mission is to provide safe, temporary supportive housing so people in need can secure permanent housing.
Guests of the program sign agreements of 28 days and are able to renew with program director approval. Priorities are given to veterans, seniors, and low income or low wage earners in Jefferson County.
The non-profit accepts donations of time, money, and supplies. You can visit them on the web at www.baysidehousing.org for more information.
