Home Port Learning Center provides a home to at-risk youth in Whatcom County by providing them with an experiential learning environment, engaging teachers, and teaching work readiness skills. The students who come to Home Port thrive in our small classroom setting and the camaraderie among the students.

“I wasn’t really going to school until I found Home Port. The staff gave me a chance to show my full potential and prove to others and myself that I am somebody. I wanted my GED, but in the beginning I was far from getting it. After one year, I have done a complete 180-degree turn around and now I am taking my last GED test. I have completed probation and I have been sober for seven months. Home Port has broadened my horizon by giving me skills I will use the rest of my life…” –Former Home Port Student
