Here’s where Whatcom County veterans can go online to find help, connect

Whatcom County veterans can connect and get help through a new website.

The idea for the “Whatcom County Veteran Community” website came from veterans themselves via a survey and veterans summit, where it became clear that better connection, communication and information were needed.

The goal is to provide one place online where veterans can connect through community events and learn about resources for veterans, including health, housing and education.

The site is a partnership of Whatcom County’s Veterans Program, which is administered through the Whatcom County Health Department and Western Washington University’s Veterans Services Program.

Find it online at wp.wwu.edu/whatcomveterans.
