The King County Veterans Program removes barriers and provides services that deliver the most equitable opportunities for empowering veterans, servicemembers and their families to achieve their greatest potential.
The King County Veterans Program (KCVP) works with partners across the region to provide financial, housing, employment and other supportive services to veterans, servicemembers and their families throughout King County.
Visit one of our two locations during walk-in hours to meet with a social service professional. Through a collaborative case management process, your assigned social service professional will help determine the type and levels of services and resources for which you may be eligible.
To be eligible for services or resources, you must be a veteran (served at least one day in the military, any discharge type), servicemember, or respective family member living in King County. Some services are income dependent. When you visit a King County Veterans Program office, bring your ID, proof of service and proof of income.
The following types of short-term resources may be available for veterans, servicemembers and their families, depending on eligibility and program guidelines:
KCVP is not a 24-hour emergency services facility, but services are available to help with unforeseen catastrophic events. KCVP may be able to provide help with emergency food, expenses, clothing, transportation, hygiene items, utilities or shelter. KCVP can help you obtain vital documents such as driver’s license/ID, birth certificates or military records. Assistance with basic household goods, child care, onsite emergency supplies such as cold weather clothing, or other emergency related needs may be available if you encounter a hardship.
Assistance developing an employment plan, help with your resume and interview skills, job search support, work clothing/tools, vocational assessments, short term training certificates, computer lab access, and connections to employment opportunities are available. KCVP often hosts onsite job fairs to help connect veterans to employment opportunities in King County.
KCVP may be able to help with temporary shelter, assistance with move in costs, basic furniture, rent/mortgage/moorage or storage costs in a crisis. KCVP can assist with utilities needs, including shut off prevention. Our social service professionals may be able to connect you with the larger housing assistance community to coordinate VASH vouchers, SSVF rapid re-housing assistance, low-income housing or supportive or transitional housing options.
In addition to helping you find employment and connecting you with training resources, KCVP provides financial coaching, budgeting support and can help you apply for VA, Federal, or State level benefits such as disability or social security.
LEGAL AND END OF LIFE
KCVP has onsite specialists who can help with civil legal issues, discriminatory housing practices or emergent eviction prevention. Our social service professionals can connect you with post incarceration programs and supports for other obstacles to recovery. KCVP can also help with finding assisted living in Veterans Homes or help you or your family with burial expenses.
Our social service professionals can connect you to physical and mental health resources, assistance with substance use disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, or traumatic brain Injury resources, and connections to social groups and supports. KCVP may also help cover costs of medical supplies and devices not covered by your health insurance, such as reading glasses, emergent dental costs, or medical assistive devices.
