Support Services for Veterans Families
Supportive Services for Veteran Families prevents homelessness by helping qualifying Veterans and their families gain access to the resources they need in order to successfully transition to or maintain permanent housing. Through the SSVF program, Okanogan County Community Action Support Specialists provide guidance and coordination to Veterans and their families, helping them make informed decisions, understand their options and gain access to VA benefits.
It is not too late to get Energy Assistance
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) assists low income homeowners or renters with their heating bills and heating system repair costs. Qualifying households receive benefits of $25 – $1000 toward their primary heat source of wood, pellets, propane, oil, or electric heat. The LIHEAP Program typically runs from November through May, or as funds remain available.
