FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | Wednesday, March 15, 2023
Eureka, CA — Nation’s Finest, a 50-year-old non-profit organization providing housing, mental health support, case management, and job training services to Veterans and their families, has been providing for Veterans experiencing homelessness in Humboldt County since 2011. Located in Old Town, a welcoming staff provides resources to any Veteran in need. These services include case management, funds for security deposits or rental debt, and transitional housing for single men, women, and emotional support/service animals.
Transitional housing at Nation’s Finest is a structured program that follows a clinical model to support Veterans reaching self-sufficiency. The staff embraces Nation’s Finest’s mission to support each Veteran as an individual, formulating comprehensive, personalized plans to help reach their goals. In this program, basic needs are provided such as: three meals a day, utilities, internet, and transportation.
Nation’s Finest is a part of the Humboldt County Continuum of Care (CoC), which links to local resources to ensure a collaborative effort is made on an ongoing basis. Proving the power of collaborating with community members and peers, this effort has led to an increase in successfully housed Veterans.
Every day, Nation’s Finest sees the need for community involvement through private donations or attending their fundraising events and is always seeking local landlords willing to rent to a Veteran who has earned our support.
Each year, Nation’s Finest in Eureka serves 200+ Veterans with resources to become housed, connected, and self-sufficient. The full Nation’s Finest organization serves 7,000+ Veterans across Nevada, Arizona, and California.
The next fundraiser for the Eureka location is on April 29, 2023: A “Game of Throws” cornhole tournament at the Fortuna Veterans Memorial Building at 1426 Main St. Fortuna, CA.
