Veterans group seeking donations for Sequim-area group home

A nonprofit serving the homeless veterans living in Clallam and Jefferson counties, is looking to create a group home for aging veterans in Sequim.

The North Olympic Regional Veteran’s Housing Network (NORVHN’s), which operates the Sarge’s Place shelter in Forks along with three permanent supportive housing projects in Forks and Port Angeles serving homeless single veterans as well as veterans with families, is looking to Sequim for its next group home project, representatives said last week.

NORVHN is seeking to build a seven-bedroom group home, and honor a veteran by naming the home after him/her.

Applicants are asked why they or the veteran they seek to honor should be considered for the honor in no more than 1,000 words; email applications to info@sarges veteransupport.com. Include the veteran’s dates of service, branch with which they serves and any community involvement they’ve had over the years.

The organization is also seeking land or money donations for the project. To contribute a tax-deductible donation, mail checks to NORVHN, 250 Ash Ave., Forks, WA 98331. Or, donate online with the organization’s PayPal link at SargesVeteranSupport.com.

NORVHN is finishing a seven-bedroom group home in Forks called Hobucket House, named after one of its founding members: Jimmy Hobucket was a Vietnam veteran, a Quileute Warrior and service officer.

Contact the organization at 360-374-5252 or info@sargesveteransupport.com for more information.
