What is Dine-in to make a Difference?  

Stay home.  Learn something new in the kitchen. Hear about youth homelessness

in our communities - and raise funds to

make a difference. 

This year we are all playing a role in our community’s well-being by staying home. In an effort to champion social-distancing, we are putting our typical “Light Their Path” gala on hold and introducing a new event in 2020, Dine-in to make a Difference

Dine in to make a Difference will be comprised of three Friday evening broadcasts in the month of October. Each broadcast will feature a cooking lesson that viewers can take in the comfort of their own home, as well as plenty of information about Northwest Youth Services folded in. 

What is Northwest

Northwest Youth Services collaborates with at-risk, runaway and homeless youth to foster self-reliance. 

Northwest Youth Services is a non-profit organization serving young people ages 13-24 experiencing homelessness in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. 

We support youth in identifying goals and building the skills necessary to reach their own sense of stability.

Northwest Youth Services offers housing, street outreach, help finding a job or enrolling in school, connection to mental health services, support for LGBTQ youth, restorative justice for juvenile offenders, and referrals to other services in the community.

Can’t attend our Dine-in but still want to make a difference?
