Rogue 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.
Sometimes, when we are at the end of our ropes we are willing to look for a different solution than the one that frayed our safety line. Yep, times of desperation are the perfect times to look for a hand up.
RVVCO is the safety net if you want to let go and look for a different place to hang your hopes. Once you decide to begin your journey to stable living, RVVCO is here to help overcome those barriers that kept you from achieving success in your life. .
Here is Jason’s story, a Desert Storm veteran who went from homeless to successful reintegration into civilian society. It was a transition that is amazing to see happen. By the way, it happens all the time at RVVCO!
“I was living homeless in my car when I found Rogue Valley Veterans & Community Outreach in August of 2015. They helped me find housing quickly. I was placed at one of their transitional homes where I shared living space with 13 other veterans. I was very happy to have a safe room and a bed to sleep in.
No matter where you live, house chores are a fact of life. At RVVCO those chores were divided among housemates and rotated from week to week. This isn’t too bad as long as people followed RVVCO rules including cleaning up after yourselves and respecting each other’s space.
I took advantage of the opportunities to overcome a lot of barriers that kept me homeless. That is what is so great about the programs at RVVCO, you have a safe and secure place to live while you figure out the rest of how you want your life to go.
My experience with RVVCO has been positive and productive. They helped me achieve my goal of living independently again, and I’m very much appreciative. Thank you RVVCO!”
