Veterans’ Housing Project
"Serving those who serve our country"
The Veterans’ Housing Project is a collaborative effort of private, public and nonprofit organizations to provide safe and affordable housing to assist military men and women transition easily back into the community upon returning from deployment. Founders of this program include the City of Eugene, Eugene Water & Electric Board (EWEB), the Homebuilders Association of Lane County (HBA) and St. Vinnie’s, along with support from hundreds of businesses, service providers, families and individuals.
Many times maintaining financial and social self-sufficiency is out of reach for some veterans. The Veterans’ Housing Project can supply affordable housing for up to two years, which can ease the burden of transition and allow time to stabilize lives and families. This program was established as a Thank You and Welcome Home for our deserving Veterans.
Work has begun on the remodel of 6th house located in the River Road area, and the 7th which is new construction. There are plenty of opportunities for volunteers, businesses and donors to get involved.
The Veterans’ Housing Project welcomes all hands. If you’re looking for an opportunity to get involved, call our Volunteer Coordinator Angie Bowser at 541-743-7147, contact Angie by email, or visit the VHP website.
