Emergency Shelter

Sarge's Place, Forks WA

Sarge’s Place, our homeless Veterans shelter located in Forks, is run through the profit made from our secondhand store, Clallam County homelessness grants, and donations.  Each Veteran residing within our shelter has their own sleeping bay, with communal kitchen, laundry, pantry, dayroom and computer lab.  We provide intensive case management to aid the Veterans to become self-sufficient once again.

We also have a 2-bedroom apartment upstairs for Veterans with children or an animal. We have a full-time Master in Social Work Executive Director, full-time Case Manager and full-time live-in House Manager onsite.

Our goal is to assist the Veterans towards permanent housing for all Veterans who are committed to returning to independent living. We provide structure in a clean and sober environment with access to mental health support, intensive case management, and referrals to employment, schooling and life skill groups. This will encourage lasting stability while assisting Veterans in reaching personal goals to help break the cycle of homelessness.

Our program can accommodate individuals, couples, families and Veterans with an animal for up to one year, or as long is necessary to stabilize the household and aid them in moving into permanent housing.

Veterans must meet the following criteria:

  • Eligible for VA Healthcare
  • Honorable or General Under Honorable Discharge
  • Homeless for one or more nights
  • Clean and sober
  • Willingness to undergo criminal background check

If you meet these criteria and would like more information, please call:

Minsky Place was purchased in 2023 with an estate donation from the late Lt. Colonel James Minsky. This property was an existing 8-bedroom house which will be modified to a 6-bedroom group home for elderly Veterans who need supportive care. Approximately $300,000 in remodeling will need to be accomplished before the Veterans will be able to move in, hopefully by spring 2024. We are currently fundraising for these remodel dollars.
