Abraham's House, 312 N. Callow Blvd., Bremerton

Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic, 9177 Ridgetop Blvd., Silverdale

Women's Resources - please call for location, (360) 865-0967

Clothing is offered at only one location, Abraham's House, 312 N. Callow Blvd. in Bremerton. Other services and providers will not be available. 

This event is open to Kitsap County veterans and their immediate families only. Please provide a DD214 form, military retiree ID card, or VA card. Unaccompanied family members must bring a DD214 and proof of relationship.

The event is coordinated by the Kitsap Area Veterans Alliance and Kitsap County Veterans Program and Veterans Advisory Board.

BOARD FUNCTION/PURPOSE​

The Kitsap County Veterans' Advisory Board is made up of 17 volunteers from throughout the county who are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for three-year terms. All members must be veterans of military or merchant marine service honorably discharged.  A simple majority of the council are members of local chapters of national recognized veterans organizations.

The Veterans Advisory Board is chartered to advise County Commissioners on matters affecting local indigent veterans. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings and a longer annual retreat. Members also help coordinate the Veteran Stand Down events in April and September, and the annual The Unforgotten Run to Tahoma ceremony on Memorial Day weekend honoring the unclaimed remains of deceased veterans. The Veterans Advisory Board is also active with local Veterans Day and military appreciation ceremonies.
