The Ultimate Goal of the Veterans Enrichment Center

is to provide transitional housing and supportive services to homeless and at risk local Veterans. The Veterans Enrichment Center staff realized the need to support our local Veterans with one of the most basic of needs; supportive housing. Until we understand the need to provide housing assistance to our Veterans, we will not be able to eliminate one of life's basic barriers.

The Veterans Enrichment Center is designed to house between 18-20 Veterans at a cost of $400 per month. The $400 per month is an all-inclusive operations fee and covers the cost for internet, telephone, water, garbage, cable and electricity.

They'll be able to access a computer, get help with job searches, bring in a counselor or create personal goals while they network and support each other in a residential setting.

Help support our local veterans projects and events by purchasing your Veterans Enrichment Center and Klamath & Lake Counties Stand Down gear (click here for more information)!
