Community Meeting- Orting Veterans Village

Orting Veterans Village – Community Meeting

Date: Feb. 20th, 2018
Time: 6:30pm-8:00pm
Where: Orting Soldiers Home- O’Connor Hall
Address: 1301 Orting Kapowsin HWY. E. Orting

The Puget Sound Veterans Hope Center (PSVHC) and Panza are working to expand housing options for veterans, and to provide them with the supportive services they need to succeed in civilian life.
Veterans Served

The Orting Veterans Village will serve veterans in need of stable, supportive housing. (This is not an emergency housing or shelter program.) Each veteran will participate in an application and background review to evaluate the need for housing, ability to pay a monthly rent, need for supportive services, and other requirements.

Project Partners
Panza is a non-profit originally formed to support Camp Quixote, a transient tent city for adults that was hosted by Thurston County faith communities. Panza and the residents of the Camp built Quixote Village in 2013. The Village is composed of 30 tiny houses and a community building that houses a shared kitchen, laundry facilities, showers, and social and office space. PSVHC and Panza have teamed up to develop a new tiny house village
for veterans at the Washington Soldiers Home in Orting, a facility owned by the Washington Department of Veteran Affairs (WDVA). The land will be provided by WDVA at no cost through a long term lease.
