Our mission is to empower Veterans of Lane County by providing assistance with transitional housing, gainful employment, peer support, mental health counseling, financial counseling, education on benefits and services available, as well as participation in a recovery program from substance abuse. We treat everyone with respect and dignity as they go through their new journey. Our goal is to have each client assessed, interviewed, and placed within 48 hours. If HOV isn’t the right solution for a client, we will help connect them with the organization that is. See our full list of resources for more info.
This is not a one size fits all, and is not for everyone. Attending meetings, having sponsorship/mentoring, and identifying with your feelings is very important in recovery.
Assessment + History: We learn about their drug, family, medical and educational history as well as how they self-identify, leisure activities, race/culture/spirituality, military and employment history. We assess patient’s needs, obstacles and liabilities, as well as their strengths, assets, resources, and support structure to determine appropriate level of care and what approach best fits their needs.
They may not be ready for transitional housing and may need inpatient care. At this time that will be determined. If HOV isn’t the right solution for them, we will connect them with the organization that is.
