Central Oregon Veterans Village

Bend Heroes Foundation is organized for the
primary purpose of honoring Central Oregon's
military veterans, first responders,
and other heroes.

The Central Oregon Veterans Village is a community of transitional shelters designed to provide shelter and services for homeless veterans.

The project is a Joint Venture between the Bend Heroes Foundation and Central Oregon Veterans Outreach (COVO). It is being managed as a public-private partnership with the City of Bend, Deschutes County, and the State of Oregon.

The Village is being modeled after a successful program in Clackamas County. Our goal is to have 15 shelters and a central community building. The community building will have kitchen, dining, case management offices, laundry, restrooms, and showers.

Services will include: 

  • Transitional Shelter
  • Health services (behavioral and physical)
  • Social service programs (geared toward self-sufficiency)
  • Employment training and skill-building
  • Housing Placement
