VetVillageAK. is a cooperative community based on the "Housing First" model. This is permanent, supportive housing for Veterans, some with families. Residents are required to make a contribution to their housing cost, most required to work at jobs provided by our partners,or attend classes, while those unable to work offsite will be provided employment at the Village.
Accommodation and encouragement to reintegrate and to overcome substance abuse issues are all part of the program. Three meals a day are provided, with the kitchen being one of the sources of onsite employment. Our commercial nursery, greenhouse, and village maintenance of property and equipment also provides jobs. In addition, a number of businesses have agreed to locate on site. Self sufficiency, self reliance, and the atmosphere of a permanent community with Veteran camaraderie are our goals.
