Sarge’s Place, our homeless Veterans shelter located in Forks, is run with a United States Department of Veterans Affairs Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) contract. Under HCHV, our non-profit is paid a stipend per Veteran per night that resides within our program. Each Veteran has their own sleeping bay, with communal kitchen, laundry, pantry, dayroom and computer lab.
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
