DRYHOOTCH IS A PLACE WHERE VETERANS CAN GATHER INFORMALLY IN A COFFEE HOUSE; A SAFE, COMFORTABLE, DRUG-AND-ALCOHOL-FREE ENVIRONMENT.

What is Dryhootch?

Dryhootch is a nonprofit 501c3 organization formed by combat Veterans to help Veterans in their return home.


How did it start?

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.


What does ‘Dryhootch’ mean?

“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.”
