Hobucket House is coming along

Since it is Veterans Day this week, it is a good time for an update on the Hobucket House.

It will be a 7-bedroom group home for homeless Veterans and located on Ash Avenue. It is a stick-built modular construction that will be transported from Auburn, Washington to Forks via five trucks and will be craned onto the foundation which was recently poured.

The build on Hobucket House has extended into the rainy season, it has been really rainy, and now requires the use of a crane to lower the modules onto the foundation. Normally, they slide them off the truck onto the foundation….but the weather dictates the use of a crane. This is a price tag of $25,000. Donations are being accepted for this cost.

All donations are tax-deductible to: North Olympic Regional Veterans Housing Network, 250 Ash Ave., Forks, WA 98331.

NORVHN is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit and has been providing homeless services for over 10 years. The federal ID is 91-2046528.

The project recently received a $10,000 donation from the Quileute Tribal Trust Fund. This donation will be used to purchase furniture for Hobucket House.

Hobucket House is named after one of the non-profit’s founding members, James Hobucket. James was a Quileute Warrior, Service Officer, and proud Veteran. James died a few years ago due to cancer and the project is honored to have the Quileute Tribe aid them in the creation of a home for homeless Veterans. A January 2022 delivery date is anticipated.
