Lake Whatcom Residential and Treatment Center was created in 1968 as a non-profit, 501(C)(3) organization in Whatcom County, under the name Blue Canyon Foundation. In the early 70's, our focus shifted from retardation and elderly care to mental health. In 1980 we moved closer to Bellingham and changed our name to Lake Whatcom Residential and Treatment Center - Lake Whatcom Center (LWC) for short. Since then we have expanded our services and currently provide licensed residential care in our boarding home, independent supported living, community outpatient mental health services, intensive mental health services (IOP and PACT), employment services, and protective payee services.
