The Victory Village Program

Victory Village is a substance abuse recovery program offering transitional living, employment training and addiction recovery services for Veterans.  Victory Village is an expansion of a substance abuse recovery program that was started in Oroville, CA in 2008.  Victory Village is owned and operated by the Northern California Community Development Corporation, NCCDC, a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. 

The main program will be relocated to a facilty in Butte County, CA, where rehabilitation of a 48 acre property will commence as soon as acquistion is completed.  Ultimately, the facility will provide transitional living facilities and recovery services for up to 60 Veterans, specifically for Veterans suffering from substance abuse and/or dual diagnosis of disabilities such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  The property will provide outdoor recreation for our recovering Veterans.  The first phase of the project will provide transitional living and substance abuse treatment for up to 24 Veterans.    

Victory Village operates in three areas of California.  In Amador Countiy, Jason and Nichole Mulford are developing a facility and operate a program to accommodate Veterans in the Sierra foothills.  In Sacramento, under the direction of Ken Shomake, we are associated with a major employment training program.  Ken is CEO of Stay Safe Solutions and Past President of the California Disabled Veterans Business Alliance.  The northern California area is served by NCCDC DBA Victory Village primarily in Butte, Sutter and Yuba County areas.

At "Victory Village", we will offer outpatient services, a sober living environment and residential care.  Outpatient services are offered to clients who require specialized treatment without continuous supervision.  Services include treatment assessments, individual counseling sessions, specialized treatment planning, weekly drug screening, representation in the judicial system, and referral services.  Our residential program is designed to provide maximum structure and support.  In residential treatment, group and individual counseling, family groups, vocational training and living skills are provided.  Full services including food, utilities and household supplies are included. 

Our sober living environment services provide a residential program with less structure, supervision and support than residential care.  Clients in the SLE program must attend weekly 12-step meetings, sign in-out, complete daily chores and follow rules and procedures.  In the SLE treatment, our clients are isolated for the first 30 days to minimize any contact with former associates that might bring negative influences and allow them to focus on treatment goals.  

Vocational training and employment opportunities will be offered to the participants in our program in the home repair and deconstruction trades.  Participants will be trained in all construction skills from demolition and clean-out to painting, carpeting, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and carpentry.  This training will be carried out under the supervision of President, Eric Almquist, a licensed general building contractor who has rehabilitated over 1,600 living units throughout his career.

Employment and training in the construction trades, as well as a sales outlet for vintage merchandise and architecturally significant salvage from building dismantling, is planned to be developed on commercial property near the program.  Sales of donated furniture, appliances, vintage merchandise and construction materials salvaged from environmentally responsible deconstruction practices, will be sold to cover some of the costs of the training program.  The on-the-job training program will employ managers, sales clerks, loading clerks, office staff, repair persons, truck drivers and all other types of workers needed to operate the store.  Richard Judd, DVBE certified consultant, will be involved with the disabled Veterans business enterprises.
