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 include the City of Eugene, Eugene Water & Electric Board (EWEB), the Homebuilders Association of Lane County (HBA) and St. Vincent de Paul, along with support from hundreds of businesses, service providers, families and individuals.
If you follow the news, know a veteran, or are part of a veteran family, the challenges faced by troops returning from deployment are no doubt familiar, from re-establishing themselves in the family to finding suitable work or even a place to live. The founders and volunteers of the Veteran Housing Project appreciate these challenges and are committed to smoothing the transition, one household at a time.
For starters, the Veterans’ Housing Project can supply affordable housing for up to two years, giving tenants time to get reaquainted, explore their options, and move forward. Bolstered by its huge and equally dedicated volunteer force, the VHP is our community’s way of saying Welcome Home and Thank You to a most deserving population.
The Veterans’ Housing Project welcomes all hands. If you’re looking for an opportunity to get involved, call our Volunteer Coordinator Ashely Hensley at 541-743-7147, contact Ashely by email, or visit the VHP website.
