The Seattle Public Library will offer drop-in help at two Library locations for military veterans who are experiencing homelessness or living on low incomes. Times and dates are listed below.



A veteran specialist from Supportive Services for Veteran Families will be available to connect people who have been in the military and are experiencing homelessness, or living on very low incomes, with services to help them find housing. Services provided will include:


  • rapid access to housing
  • counseling
  • financial planning
  • access to transportation
  • access to income resources
  • help with expenses
  • help with legal issues
  • access to medical care


"At the Ballard Branch, over the course of 2017 we've connected over 70 veterans with housing and other resources!" said Jonathan Koroshec, adult librarian.


These events are presented in partnership with Supportive Services for Veteran Families.
