At our last May 22, 2023 meeting, Daniel Castillo introduced the students responsible for building the Chicken Coop in the La Conner High School CTE (Career and Technical Education) Residential Construction program.
 
La Conner Rotary provided the funds to acquire material to build the Coop allowing students to use the tools most commonly used on a job site. 
The students presented pictures of the coop and some guidance.
Their work and their presentation was so inspirational!  Well done Daniel and team.

The family support side provides case management to help people find the services they need. They provide counseling for children and adults and parenting classes. They also have advocacy services for those in the court system. Their main area of focus is Whatcom and Skagit counties and provide some services in Island and San Juan counties.
