Fleeing a substance abuse issue in late 2014, Navy veteran Tammy left North Carolina and moved back to Spokane. She had grown up in Spokane but had been away for 20 years and lacked the support needed to transition smoothly. As a result, Tammy’s family found themselves experiencing homelessness. Tammy and her daughter Sierra lived at the Union Gospel Mission’s women’s shelter, while her husband Robert chose to receive help at an addiction treatment center in North Carolina. Goodwill Industries’ Supportive Services for Veteran Families program was able to help. SSVF connected Tammy’s family with community and Goodwill services, including food banks, VA Disability Compensation, Northwest Justice Project, the Department of Social and Health Services, Newby-ginnings, WorkSource, the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Plan to Work, Ticket to Work, Goodwill Transitional Jobs Program, Goodwill Career Center, Goodwill Moving Forward, ZipRecruiter.com, and Spokane Community College. Now Tammy and Robert maintain stable housing with Sierra. Supportive Services for Veteran Families is happy to help Tammy’s family on their road to housing stability.
