Welcoming our veterans home

November 15, 2012


This winter, local leaders are working together to ensure all of our veterans have a home for the Holidays.

We are proud to partner with the Veterans Administration (VA), Home Forward, Multnomah County, and other community partners to help veterans find safe, permanent homes. 

The VA provides vouchers for veterans to help pay rent, but many veterans have a difficult time finding an affordable home, or cannot pay move-in costs.  With our partners, we are offering additional funds to help veterans move in to a new home, pay deposits and other fees, and even create incentives for landlords who rent to veterans. Together, we can help our veterans be successful in their homes.

We are calling on landlords in our community to join with us, and open your doors to our veterans.

For more information on the program, and to open your rental home to a veteran, email Home Forward at, or call 503-802-8333, Option 6.
