Rotary Lunch Program – Erik Tobiason, Central Oregon Veterans Village

On Tuesday, September 1, 2020, our lunch speaker will be our own club member and past president, Erik Tobiason. Erik will be talking to us about the Central Oregon Veterans Village.


The Central Oregon Veterans Village is a community of transitional shelters designed to provide shelter and services for homeless veterans.

The project is a Joint Venture between the Bend Heroes Foundation and Central Oregon Veterans Outreach (COVO). It is being managed as a public-private partnership with the City of Bend, Deschutes County, and the State of Oregon.

The Village is being modeled after a successful program in Clackamas County. Our goal is to have 15 shelters and a central community building. The community building will have kitchen, dining, meeting rooms, restrooms, and showers.

This meeting will be all-virtual. Join the Zoom Meeting here:
