Resource Center

A helping hand in times of need


Please Note: The Resource Center, Other Bank, and donation bin will be closed from Monday April 12th- Friday April 16th as the roof gets replaced on the building.  We will reopen on Monday, April 19th.  Please hold your donations until then.  Thank you!!

The Resource Center is located in the City Hall Annex at 5694 Second Avenue in Ferndale Washington. The Center is open Monday from 9:30 am- 12:30 pm and 2:30-6:00 pm, Tuesday, 9:30 am- 12:30 pm and the 1st Saturday of the month, 10:00 am-1:00 pm, staffed with friendly volunteers who can help community members access services.

Services provided onsite include job search assistance, resume, cover letter, and interview assistance, clothing resources, food, shower passes, bus passes, internet, fax and phone access, and connections to basic need and educational resources in Whatcom County.

We are taking all necessary COVID-19 precautions, including regularly sanitizing public spaces, limiting the number of people allowed in the building, requiring mask wearing, and providing service over the phone too.  If you’d prefer assistance over the phone instead of coming in, please call us during our open hours.  We are happy to help!

Items needed: In order to better serve people who are living outside, we are requesting donations of sleeping bags to help ensure folks can stay warm.  Please drop them off during our open hours.  THANK YOU!

We envision a Ferndale that welcomes, honors, and empowers all people.


The Ferndale Community Resource Center is a place where everyone is welcome and respected.  Knowledgeable volunteers help community members connect with resources, and people share skills and talents.  It is a place where individuals and organizations work together to enhance community well-being.


1. Individuals’ well-being is enhanced by involvement, support, and connections with community.

2. Everyone has value, and deserves to be honored and respected.

3. Relationships are reciprocal.

4. All belong and have a voice.

5. Everyone has something to offer.

6. We seek to acknowledge who the community is now.

7. Generosity is contagious.
