Our building crews and volunteers are ready to begin building “The Barracks” as soon as we acquire the funding. Transitional housing is the 1st step in the process of permanently housing our Veterans. Homeless Veterans will be placed in transitional housing – “The Barracks”, which will accommodate a large number of Veterans. “The Barracks” are tailored in a military fashion that our Veterans are accustomed to. With these familiar surroundings, the transition from the streets becomes much easier for them to endure. As we place Veterans in permanent housing, we will be able to bring more Veterans off the streets and place them in our transitional housing complex – “The Barracks”. Veterans with families will have separate quarters. This is the 1st step to a New Beginning for each Veteran and their families.
As reported by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, 2,000 homeless Veterans were placed in housing in 2016. This will bring the annual point-in-count of homeless Veterans to about 46,000 still starving on the streets of our great country. This is unacceptable! Our crews and volunteers are building permanent housing for our homeless Veterans. All homes are built for efficiency.
Nationwide our homeless Veterans and their families are suffering the hardship of living on the streets. Our Veterans fought for our way of life and the freedoms we enjoy. Our Veterans families willingly sacrificed precious time with their loved one. It is unacceptable to allow these courageous citizens to suffer as they do! Our housing services are helping Veterans and their families. We have paid a Marine Veterans rent so that she didn’t get evicted and become another statistic. We placed a homeless Veteran in an apartment. We replaced a Desert Storm Veterans appliances after Hurricane Harvey so that his family could live in his home while waiting to repair it.
