ATTN: Veterans Affected by the Butte-Amador Fire

Victory Village has a grant to assist homeless veterans with re-housing in Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne, Alpine, El Dorado, and Mariposa Counties.  However, these veterans must be under 50% Average Median Income for the county in which they reside or wish to relocate to.  Please have all veterans contact us for assistance, even if they do not qualify for our grant.

A lot of the veterans who have been calling us for assistance due to the loss of their home in the fire do not qualify for this grant because they are above the 50% AMI threshold.  I am starting this fund for those veterans and theuir families so that Victory Village, along with our community, can assist in getting them back on their feet.  All donations are tax-deductible up to the allowable amount.

If you know any veterans who need assistance, please have them contact Victory Village at 209-223-2286.  Even if they don't qualify for the grant, we are going to assist them in any way we can with this fund as well as many resource referrals.  

Thank you for supporting veterans and their families!
