Clothing & Donations Program

Every Veteran and family that exits our programs and moves into their new home receives furniture and household items to turn a “house” into a “home”.

 

Thanks to the generosity of the community, the VIC has clothing options for men, women and children, as well as essential hygiene items every client receives upon enrollment as needed.
