The Reentry Program for incarcerated veterans

This program is a joint project with King County to address the needs of veterans’ incarcerated in County Correctional Facilities, offering alternatives to jail and referral to housing, employment services, and treatment.

Many of the veterans have come to the jail due to un-treated drug and alcohol issues, poverty, homelessness, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The program provides:

  • transitional housing for veterans upon release from the jail,

  • assessment and referral to the Puget Sound VA Health Care System for treatment including drug, alcohol and mental health counseling,

  • job referral and placement services, and

  • assistance with court appearances and early release requirements.
