WestCare Oregon is located in Salem, Oregon. The facility will be a home and resource center for our homeless Veterans.

The Home for Heroes in Salem, OR is getting ready for their Grand Opening which will allow up to a 30 bed occupancy with shared facilities. As well as a full commercial kitchen and dining room for guests to enjoy meals and conversation in a safe and warm environment. The kitchen will provide as a culinary program allowing the veteran(s) to learn skills and experience needed once they have transitioned out of the program.

The Mission Continues will partner with Wounded Warrior Project to finish the final touches to the outside of the building including renovations to fences, deck, tables and exterior painting. This is a large building with an even larger mission ahead of them.

The event will run from 0900 - 1600. Lunch will be provided onsite by Wounded Warrior Project. Please know that all volunteers are welcome and very much appreciated. Whether or not you can come for the entire day or a portion of the day. There will be tasks for everyone.

We will go forward with the service project rain or shine. Parking updates will be provided as we get closer to the event. All volunteers, of any age is welcome. When registering for the event through The Mission Continues site, please register each individual separately.

Registering before hand will be a greatly appreciated so we make sure there is enough food ordered to feed everyone.
