Because we define a ‘Sustainable Community’ as one where all residents get their basic needs met, Sustainable Ballard joins other Ballard civic organizations, congregations, service providers, advocates and concerned, caring residents, as well as city agencies, in the Ballard Community Taskforce on Homelessness and Hunger (BCTHH), to learn about and seek compassionate and effective responses to the needs of our community’s most vulnerable members.
The Taskforce meets once a month, on the fourth Thursday of each month, 10:30AM-12Noon, at Nyer Urness House. The meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend. No prior RSVP required.
Check the SB Calendar of Events for future BCTHH meetings dates and topics.

Mission of the Taskforce: The BCTHH works to end homelessness and hunger in the Ballard community by providing a forum for service providers, community advocates and governmental agencies to share information, capitalize on their collective resources and coordinate efforts. We will work as advocates of change and partners of compassion toward a just and supportive community.
