Veterans experience many different types of housing needs. Some veterans live primarily outside with no primary shelter. Some are housing insecure or at-risk of losing their homes. Some have access to housing but lack the transportation to get there. Others simply need a place to recover from surgery, injury, or illness. We aim to provide options for Veterans with varying needs and their families.
Veterans experiencing crises often need shelter as soon as possible. Having funds set aside specifically to get Veterans into hotels (even for just one night) is paramount to providing inclusive care. This is especially important for inclement weather.
Transitional housing is often the stepping stone to obtaining permanent housing for Veterans. This is what is commonly referred to as a "homeless shelter". This is a safe place for Veterans to receive social services, food, and shelter while working towards employment and secure housing.
Not all Veterans have healthcare. Because of this, when they experience injury, illness, or surgeries they may often have no place to safely recover other than the streets. Medical Respite care is provided for those Vets who need a little extra help and observation while they are healing. We believe every person deserves to recover in a bed and not a park bench.
The end goal for everyone experiencing homelessness is a permanent, safe place to live. Unfortunately, with rising real estate costs in our state, this is becoming more and more difficult. Sustainable tiny homes provide a great alternative to apartments or more traditional homes because they are: affordable, handicap accessible, and efficient. Our goal is to provide a community of tiny homes for Veterans (and their families) to live and thrive.
