|These are some of the places our veterans are living now.|
|Haven't our veterans suffered enough?
Don't you think they deserve better?
It's time to give back to the veterans that gave so much to their country.
We would like to move them to a small micro home like you see below.
There are currently an estimated 80,000 or more homeless veterans.
The top priorities for homeless veterans are secure, safe, clean housing along with a supportive environment free of drugs and alcohol.
Secure housing as each veteran will have their own small house.
It's only right to give back to those that gave so much.
Thank a veteran today with the help they need now.
Why name it Veterans Village?
In 1942 Henry J. Kaiser established the Kaiser shipyards to build U.S. Navy Liberty ships for WWII service. He needed homes for all his workers so he built Vanport which became the second largest city in Oregon.
When the war ended in 1945 many people left Vanport. The Vanport housing authority built a small college with the hope it would bring people to live and attend school there. The school later became Portland State University.
Vanport was completely destroyed by the flood of 1948.
Founder of PureKraze Michael Stacey relates: “Veterans Village has special meaning to me because my parents worked at the shipyards in Vancouver, Washington. The location of one of the shipyards in Vancouver gives the construction of Veterans Village a tie to Vancouver also.”
