Veterans' Transitional Housing, also known as the Corps of Recovery Discovery, is a transitional housing program for homeless veterans. The CORD program is designed to break the cycle of homelessness among veterans by utilization of a seamless continuum of health care treatment services. This program provides veterans with an opportunity to change their homeless lifestyle through the development of skills, personal growth, recovery, self-reliance, productivity, residential stability, and community involvement.
Opening in 1997, the program is the culmination of a cooperative effort between the Walla Walla Veterans Administration Medical Center, the Walla Walla Housing Authority, and Valley Residential Services.
Valley Residential Services provides supervised visitation, transportation, and parenting skills instruction for parents who receive services from the DSHS Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS). All clients must be referred through DCFS.
Valley Residential Services provides personalized support in safe, comfortable home environments for developmentally disabled individuals, residences for veterans with rehabilitation opportunities, and family assistance services.
Valley Residential Services is unable to accept clients directly.
The Developmental Disabilities Administration provides referrals to our Supported Living program.
Veterans needing transitional housing services can contact Jill Jeurs, the local Veterans' Administration's Homeless coordinator.
