About Dryhootch
Dryhootch is a nonprofit 501c3 organization formed by combat Veterans to help Veterans in their return home. Dryhootch was envisioned as a place where Veterans could gather informally in a coffee house; a safe, comfortable, drug-and-alcohol-free environment. The idea revolved around the creation of a retail coffee shop run by and for Veterans, which would also support an extended network of Veteran families, and encourage Veteran interaction with the community as a whole. “Hootch” is military jargon for a hut or safe place to sleep during combat. The term “dry” denotes the organization’s mission to provide a social gathering place for Veterans that is free of alcohol – one of the major problems plaguing Veterans of all eras. As such, the concept behind “Dryhootch” was a desire to establish a café-like environment dedicated to “helping Veterans who survived the war, survive the peace.” Learn more at www.Dryhootch.org
