  • Emergency financial assistance

2. Financial and Housing Support Services

Determine eligibility for housing, financial assistance, and supportive service needs of eligible veterans. Provide referrals to other crisis intervention services, e.g. alcohol/drug counseling, low-income housing, family counseling and job training.

3. Service Officer

4. Pathfinding Military Families

Provides prevention and intervention strategies for those most at-risk and in need to reduce or prevent homelessness. 

5. King County Funded Veterans Treatment Court

The Veterans Treatment Court focuses on treatment and rehabilitation rather than incarcerations for low-level, non-violent offenders.  The Veterans Treatment Court connects eligible veterans to treatment and counseling services available through the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

6. King County Funded Training and Support Center

Educational training opportunities prepared by educators, authors, treatment professionals, veterans, and trainers with specialty skills in assessment and treatment of PTSD, TBI and a range of military and veterans related trauma and homecoming concerns.  If your King County organization or business is in need of this type of training, visit: http://www.veteranstrainingsupportcenter.org/index.php
