North Olympic Regional Veteran’s Housing Network (NORVHN) is a local non-profit serving the homeless Veterans of Clallam and Jefferson Counties. Through NORVHN’s work, they opened Sarge’s Place homeless veterans shelter in 2011. Since that time, they have opened Camp Sol Duc in Forks and The Outpost in Port Angeles — both permanent supportive housing for singles and Veterans with families. In 2016, the organization opened Sarge’s Attic, a secondhand store located in Forks which sells furniture and household items.
A few weeks ago, NORVHN posted on their Facebook page that they needed used computers for their resident house manager and Sarge’s Attic store manager, and Denali Advanced Integration employee and former Forks resident Katie Kinman heeded the call. Kinman requested her company donate to NORVHN and she delivered three computers on Saturday.
Denali Advanced Integration is a prominent technology provider in North America over the last 25 years based in Redmond, Wa. They are a customer-focused, family owned IT company with a workforce of more than 400 employees. They believe deeply in giving back to the community as a priority through a variety of philanthropic initiatives.
“Giving back to Sarge’s Place was an initiative that one of our employees highlighted as near and dear to her heart. We are honored to be able to support Veterans as they transition back to civilian life and are thankful for their years of service.”
