The mission of VTC is “to empower Veterans to move from crises to self-sufficiency.” Since 1996, this 501(c)(3) non-profit has operated on historic Ft Ord land to provide homeless Veterans and their families with housing, food, clothing, case management, life skills, substance abuse counseling, benefit enrollment, medical referrals, and employment training.
Under the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) principle of “Housing First,” VTC operates multiple housing programs with funding support from three federal agencies.
We have expanded our housing programs since our founding, doubling the capacity to house Veterans in the last few years. These include:
The VTC has begun construction on a new 71-unit permanent housing complex, called Lightfighter Village, for low and extremely low-income Veterans. Through measured growth and increased outreach, VTC seeks to end Veteran homelessness in Monterey County and is working towards “Functional Zero”. This means that all Veterans who seek housing are able to move into residences. Together, we can attain this goal!
