History

NCRVC first opened its doors at 2107 3rd street in Eureka in 1994 after receiving its first HVRP (Homeless Veterans Reintegration program) grant funding. Multiple grants provided educational and employment benefits and training as well as rental assistance programs. In 1996 the agency applied for Grant and Per Diem grant funding through the Department of Veterans Affairs. This grant funded the creation of twelve transitional beds that were located at an old two story Victorian that was purchased directly from Cal Trans.

Due to the growing need for transitional housing services, Vietnam Veterans of California purchased the Baronti Property at 109 and 121 4th street in Eureka in 2005. After a lengthy renovation this facility became fully staffed and operational in March 2011. The new facility was contracted to service forty two veterans and offers Grant and Per Diem transitional housing as well grant funding through Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF). The transitional housing program currently has the capacity to house 36 Veterans. In 2013, plans were made to convert the old Victorian residence into NCVRC’s Behavioral Health Center, which currently operates at a capacity of 15 beds.
