North Coast Veterans Resource Center looking to serve more veterans

EUREKA- The North Coast Veterans Resource Center in Eureka is looking to provide services to more veterans and their families.

The NCVRC is a non-profit organization and has been in Eureka for four years. It serves veterans of all eras as well as their families. Transitional housing services, permanent supportive housing, grant funded services, access to VA programs, a 90-day alcohol and drug treatment center, access to therapy and access to case management are among the services offered to veterans at the center. Now officials are looking to increase the amount of veterans they serve.  They are currently at 60 percent capacity and have federal funding available for veterans as well.

"It's frustrating when I know there are veterans out there who have access to housing who are sleeping on the street, have alcohol and drug issues and they don't know about us so we can't help them.  So our goal here is to reach out to as many veterans as we can, get them into the facility if they need help, do case management with them, help them formulate a plan, get them back onto the street, get them jobs, get them connected with the VA, get them a life again," said Bill DuBose, the Site Director of the NCVRC.

You can call the NCVRC at (707) 442-4322.
