Welcome to PCC Cascade’s Veterans Resource Center! The Cascade VRC is located in the Student Services Building (SSB) 201. We are here to provide veteran students a safe and relaxing environment that promotes a sense of community for student veterans, dependents, advocates, and friends.

Our goal is to be a “one-stop-shop” that connects veterans with resources on PCC, along with resources in the community.

  • A place to discuss confidential matters without judgment.
  • Computer workstations with printing available.
  • Work Study and Volunteer opportunities.
