Honoring Our
Veterans Experiencing Homelessness

The Tacoma Rescue Mission provides designated shelter space and specially trained staff to support every veteran experiencing homelessness staying with us.

Additionally, we have a thriving partnership with the local Veterans Affairs office. Together we offer specialized counseling and case management, housing and employment services, and much needed referrals to outside resources.

Pierce County’s ONLY Designated Shelter Space for Veterans: Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder often struggle with trust. That is why this separate space is so important.

Being surrounded by fellow veterans who can relate to their challenges and experiences helps facilitate healing and restoration.

The Veterans Resource Center: At this on-site center, veterans staying with us receive crucial one-on-one assistance, guidance and encouragement. 

We partner with Veterans Affairs to link them with a variety of personalized services to address their unique situation.

Helping our veterans thrive

Through our partnership with the U.S. Veterans Affairs Administration of American Lake and Seattle, our clients are connected with a licensed social worker. Each veteran staying with us receives mental health counseling, case management, housing and employment services, and much needed referrals to outside resources.

We are committed to seeing veterans experiencing homelessness go from merely surviving to thriving. By engaging in community conversations as members of the VA Stakeholders Committee and Operation Comfort Warriors: Heroes to Home Towns, we can continue to improve the resources for the veterans staying with us. 

The Tacoma Rescue Mission is a member of the Veterans Affair’s Stakeholders Committee and Operation Comfort Warriors: Heroes to Home Towns.
