Our Story

Rebuilding hope in veterans' lives by serving those who served us

About Us

ORH is declaring war on Veteran homelessness in rural Oregon by providing real, timely solutions built by and supported by our community. Our Veterans put their lives on the line for the people of the United States with their service, it is our honor to serve them in a time of need.

We focus on reducing two statistics that plague our Veteran community, in Coos County and across the nation:

The number of Veterans experiencing homelessness

Veterans make up less than 8% of the population in the United States, but make up nearly 10% of the homeless population.

The number of Veteran suicides nationwide

There is an estimated 22 veterans that commit suicide every day. 

No matter the problem you are struggling with there is support available. Contact the Veteran Crisis Line to connect with someone and get the resources and treatments to overcome suicidal thoughts.

Re-Humanizing the Homeless, One Veteran at a Time

In February 2020, US Air Force Veteran Tiffiany Peters began an initiative called “Re-Humanizing the Homeless, One Veteran at a Time” in hopes to give people some insight into some of the struggles veterans face daily. The stories that are attached to each image are heartbreaking, heartwarming, inspirational, and hopefully encourage you to see these individuals differently. Homelessness does not mean life is over, it means there have been obstacles that have made things harder to cope with. Together, we can step up.

Extending a hand out is a way to let someone know you are there to help them up.

Tiffiany Peters, US Air Force Veteran

My goal for this project is to inspire others to look at those who may be struggling with homelessness, not with pity, but with understanding. Understanding that they may have not chosen this life they are currently in. Understanding that what they are dealing with is probably much deeper than you or I can see. And an understanding that every person copes differently. We are not here to judge the world they live in, we are here to show empathy and offer what we can. We can all offer different things and insights, but most importantly we can offer kindness."
