The Robert M Gates Skagit Vets Connect opened in May of 2019. Community Action has been providing services to veterans since 1992, but the Robert and Becky Gates gift allowed us to open up a new, designated center just for veterans. The services center is funded by donations and you can contribute by visiting our donation page here.
Skagit Vet’s Connect is honored to serve veterans and their families with dignity, respect, and a commitment to excellence. Our goal is to increase veteran awareness of all benefits by providing the best advice and assistance in obtaining county, state, and federal benefits. We help stabilize lives, allow access to other wellness and career services they may need. Our professional staff act as an advocate for veterans and their families, so they receive all the benefits to which they are entitled.
We collaborate with community partners to ensure success for our veterans. Our supportive services are a hand-up to our veteran community by working with multiple national and community partners.
