EUGENE, Ore. — One local woman is on a mission: to house homeless veterans across the region. Lorie Perkins started Housing Our Veterans in 2005. The non-profit’s goal is to secure housing for vets struggling with PTSD or drug and alcohol abuse. Today, she manages 11 residences in Eugene, housing 74 men. She would like to open many more homes, dedicated to men who have served; But a lack of funding threatens that dream.
As we are now seeking grants to continue to provide these services to help
our Veterans sustain housing, As well as help them move forward into permenant housing.
