Veterans Assistance

The Veterans Assistance Program provides assistance for emergency needs, referrals, and advocacy to low-income veterans, their dependents, widows, widowers, and orphans.

To be eligible, veterans must:
  • Have served at least 180 days on active duty
  • Have received an honorable discharge
  • Have been living in Washington State for 12 consecutive months
  • Meet income eligibility guidelines
Help is available with food, gas, rent, utilities, medication, clothing, and in other appropriate areas.  Because of limited program funding, the program focuses its efforts on providing help when there are no other resources available.  Each year, Veterans Assistance helps about 200 veteran households.

Upcoming Events:

Skagit County Veterans Stand-Down Saturday, January 29, 2011 from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
