Patsy and Mark Burton honored their father and uncle with a generous gift to Rogue Valley Veterans & Community Outreach with UBS providing a matching gift.

Mrs. Dean Burton honored her husband and brother-in-law with a generous gift after the death of her beloved husband.

A portion of the poem in the memorial card reads: "Talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared..." The Burton family has carried out the wishes of this poem.

We at Rogue Valley Veterans & Community Outreach wish to thank the Burton brothers for their service and thank their families for their generous support in honor of them.

About Us

Rogue Valley Veterans & Community OutreachRogue Valley Veterans & Community Outreach (RVVCO) focuses on bringing the needs and the resources together for our Veterans and our community.

We are a 501 (c)(3) grass roots nonprofit agency that was founded in 1979 to help low income and homeless individuals and families. Although thirty plus years have passed since our inception; we’re still committed to feeding the hungry, helping those in crisis, and promoting self-sufficiency and independence.

In 2004 we received our first grant from the VA to provide transitional housing specifically for homeless Veterans. We now have three houses that are case managed, transitional housing for Veterans where they can live for up to two years. This gives sufficient time to address the multiple issues which have led to their homelessness.

RVVCO is the largest provider of Grant and Per Diem (GPD) services in Southern Oregon. Our agency serves Veterans from all 5 counties currently covered by SSVF Program (Supportive Services for Veteran Families). We are a model for transitional housing.

Many local homeless Veterans have come to use our Resource Center, placing our agency in an excellent position to assist those in need. In 2012 we had over 8000 Veterans using our resources on a walk in basis. Our objectives are designed to assist clients in accessing the necessary supportive services, job training, and skill development for obtaining and maintaining employment and independent living. The VA provides substance abuse treatment groups, vocational assistance, and veterans support groups at our Resource Center.

We have always had an open door policy, which encourages the community to utilize our resource and referral services.

RVVCO has a strong network of caring individuals and service providers to help create systemic change and improve the community for our Veterans. We commit ourselves, the organization, and agencies we represent to building and strengthening that network. We continue to work closely with our partners like United Way to address the homeless issue with Veterans and non-veterans alike through the Homeless Task Force and events like Project Community Connect. RVVCO is continuing to develop programs to help re-integrate that part of our community back into a productive lifestyle.


Our purpose has changed little since the agency’s founding: 

Rogue Valley Veterans and Community Outreach (RVVCO) empowers families and individuals in Jackson County to attain self-sufficiency with an enduring commitment to treating people with dignity and respect.
