Many Veterans who served America with honor and distinction during times of war and peace now find themselves homeless. Helping these servicemen and women get off the streets and back on their feet is not giving them a handout. It is merely providing a down payment on a debt that can never adequately be repaid.
The mission of the Veterans Transition Center is to provide services for Monterey County's homeless Veterans and their families. By providing Veterans with transitional housing and case management programs, they will once again become employable, productive members of the community. VTC does not simply offer short term solutions to homelessness; it strives to better the lives of homeless Veterans, and aims to give them the tools they need to help themselves.
Restoring Old Glory to the Historic Fort Ord
March 23, 2015 - Thanks to a generous donation from the Marina Foundation, Old Glory went up in the front of Martinez Hall for the first time in approximately 20 years! We are grateful to The Marina Foundation for their bestowment of our beautiful flagpole and flags! Our own former Army Sergeant Parnell Strickland and a team of Veterans proudly ran up the first flag.
VTC was proud to volunteer at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am February 11th-14th!
