What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Grant and Per Diem Housing

Rogue Valley Veterans & Community Outreach is committed to serving our Veterans. One way we assist Veterans is through a VA Grant and Per Diem program, which provides transitional housing. The goal is to help homeless Veterans achieve residential stability, increase their skill levels, and income in order to obtain independence.

Population(s) Served

RVVCO sponsors a monthly Veterans outreach event in which several community partners meet in one place to offer support to Veterans in Jackson County. Throughout the event, Veterans can enjoy a free lunch and get a free hair cut from SuperCuts.
On average, 120 Veterans attended the event to meet with various partners to find out and receive services through Work Source of the Rogue Valley, The Vet Center, Consumer Credit Counseling, The Veterans Administration, Easter Seals, Rogue Valley Transit District, Columbia Care and many others.

Ladies Are Veterans Also (LAVA) is designed to help empower female Veterans and support them in our community. The program committee is run by female Veterans and supported thru a RVVCO. Our goals are to create multiple supports
and outreach efforts for lady Veterans, as well as awareness to the community about our local woman heroes.
LAVA ladies are all female Veterans who served our Country in one aspect or another. Each member brings a diverse background to the team and allows us to relate and understand other female Vets in the area. LAVA supports all women Veterans regardless of discharge status, age, race, sexual orientation, or culture. We understand the importance of being strong individuals who all served as a team. RVVCO believes in serving every Veteran with dignity and respect and is hon-
ored to start their first ever lady Veteran program. LAVA. will bridge the gap of services that female Veterans need in our community. LAVA will provide monthly peer mentor meetings, outreach events, clothing and other supplies to female
Veterans who need assistance.
LAVA is a local female Veteran ran program designed to help empower and sup- port female Veterans in the Rogue Valley. LAVA is designed to create awareness in our community of fellow lady Veterans who proudly served their country while also creating a blanket of support. Our mission is to create support, whilealso connecting women Veterans in our community to local resources. May no sister-in-arms be left behind.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Prepare all Veterans to become successful, independent, satisfied with life civilians with pride for the service they continue to provide.

Support ALL Veterans, regardless of their discharge status with dignity and respect.

Provide support to Veterans of the Armed Forces
Coordinate with partnering agencies to meet the needs of Veterans throughout Southern Oregon
Continue to build community support for the organizations mission through awareness and marketing campaigns
Develop and maintain strong relationships with business owners, community members, donors, government agencies, industry leaders, and nonprofit organizations

Networking with community agencies to support Veterans regardless of their discharge status
Transitional housing facilities to support the Grant Per Diem Program

RVVCO has graduated 43 veterans from transitional housing into financial and housing stability just in the fiscal year 2016-2017.

RVVCO placed 487 homeless veterans and their dependents into permanent housing from 2013 - 2016.

There is a great lack of housing solutions whether transitional or permanent housing for female veterans in Southern Oregon. This is our focus for 2017-2018 projects.
