Thank you to @thespicehut for supporting our Parent Support Program with a book drive AND donating partial spice proceeds to Lydia Place! We announced a immediate need not too long ago and they went above and beyond.

These funds are instantly making an impact in our Parent Support Program, which provides a variety of services geared towards parent education and early childhood development. As part of our mission to disrupt the cycle of homelessness in our community, we will continue to advocate for early intervention, evidenced-based practices with proven, long term results.

Thank you Spice Hut for supporting Lydia Place and for being agents of change in the lives of the families we serve. We can continue our goal of leaving an age appropriate book with every child, every visit, thanks to your support!❤️

We want to give a shout out to Dakota from the @backdoorbham who is using their recent claim to fame for exceptional bar tending skills to give back to Lydia Place this month. So stop in the Back Door and don’t forget to tip!

Here’s some tidbits Dakota shared about the BACK DOOR and why they choose to give back: “I've been at BACKDOOR since the beginning, over a year ago in November of 2018. I wanted to accomplish a couple of things in joining the team; to put out a unique menu that expresses my creative ambitions, and to help bolster a business that directly supports the LGBTQ+ community. More than anything, I aspire to be the most supportive ally I can be, and to foster a sense of fun & safety within our space.

We recently participated in Bellingham Cocktail Week's bartender competition. In the first round, contestants submitted cocktails with specific parameters to a roaming panel of judges. Three finalists were then chosen to compete live at Uisce, creating two original cocktails to present to a new panel of judges. I placed second overall and won the "crowd-pleaser" portion of the competition.
-
-
Leading up to the competition, there was a tremendous amount of encouragement and engagement online. I wanted to seize the opportunity to donate a portion of my tips to support non-profits I believe in based on the buzz created about BACKDOOR.

More than anything, we feel that Bellingham is special because of its sense of community. Moving forward, we want to be a source of support in maintaining and improving the overall welfare of our community in any way that we can.

BACKDOOR is a unique place in that we have a lot of free range to experiment with cocktails. This is all thanks to my wonderful and patient bosses, Rian Greer and Andrew Keith. And the space is intimate enough to allow us to take the time to discuss a person's likes and dislikes when it comes to flavor profiles.”

Our Parent Support Program is in need of new, high quality books for ages 0-5 in order to fulfill their commitment to provide one book, for each child, each visit. 
When selecting titles please remember we are supporting parents in raising the next generation to be kind, loving, and supportive. 
You can help parents introduce these concepts in an age-appropriate and engaging way by choosing books with characters who challenge gender stereotypes, and books that celebrate the uniqueness of all family types represented in our community.

Please feel free to contact our Parent Support Program Supervisor, Jennifer Hooper at 360-671-7663 x 1005 if you have any questions or would like some support in selecting titles.

Thank you!
