The VETcare Veterans Home located at 2933 Center St NE, Salem, OR is an excellent facility for helping Veterans in Marion/Polk County who are homeless and those who are re-entering the community after being incarcerated. Veterans who were previously incarcerated and have been mandated to receive court-ordered substance abuse treatment referrals in lieu of time in jail or prison, can do so at our facility. The facility allows us to serve a maximum of 30 Veterans by providing secure housing, life skills training, substance abuse treatment referrals and reintegration programs.
