The Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs helps connect veterans and their family members to the benefits and services they earned through their military service.
Our Central Office is located in Olympia and includes a Veterans Service Center as well as administrative support for all agency programs.
WDVA offers long-term care in our four State Veteran Homes.
Vet Centers across the country provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to combat Veterans and their families. Vet Centers guide Veterans and their families through many of the major adjustments in lifestyle that often occur after a Veteran returns from combat.
Services for a Veteran may include individual and group counseling in areas such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), alcohol and drug assessment, and suicide prevention referrals.
All services are free of cost and are strictly confidential.
King County Veterans Program - Current service members, National Guard members, Reserve members, and dependents of these military personnel may be eligible for services. Clients are subject to program requirements, length of service standards, and income guidelines.
Direct services are provided at two main offices in Seattle and Renton to include:
Emergency financial assistance, Housing assistance, Employment guidance and assistance, Case management, Life stability, Mental health referrals and other supportive services
The Veterans Training Support Center provides continuing educational opportunities and professional development to those who provide direct service to veterans and their family members.
The aim is to raise awareness and understanding on issues specific to veterans such as invisible wounds like PTS and TBI, and to encourage agency and institution staff to establish promising best practices that will empower this population in their reintegration and pursuit of personal, academic, and meaningful career goals.
The Mission Continues empowers veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact.
Our operations in cities nationwide deploy veteran volunteers alongside non-profit partners and community leaders to solve some of the most challenging issues facing our communities: improving community education resources, eliminating food deserts, mentoring at-risk youth and more.
Through this unique model, veterans build new skills and networks that help them successfully reintegrate to life after the military while making long-term, sustainable transformations in communities and inspiring future generations to serve.

NJP’s mission is to secure justice through high quality legal advocacy that promotes the long-term well-being of low-income individuals, families, and communities.

Love, Compassionate Curiosity, Engaged Workforce, Stewardship, Advocacy and Community
These values guide our Philosophy of Care as we work for and alongside people experiencing poverty and homelessness in our society to improve their circumstances, while simultaneously advocating for societal changes toward equity and justice.
Growing Veterans creates opportunities for personal and professional development. For vets looking at agriculture as a viable career option, we often serve as a stepping stone- teaching them valuable agriculture skills and connecting them to resources when they are ready to start farming on their own.
For other vets, we are just a place for them to come, help out, and hang out with other vets who share similar experiences. We work with organizations like the WDVA, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the Farmer Veteran Coalition, and The Mission Continues in order to provide as many opportunities to our vets as possible.
