Companionship, Compassion, Commitment
Our Home Transitional: Female Veteran Transitional Housing
Our Home Transitional consists of a diverse team leading the way in offering transitional housing for single female veterans coming back from war, or serving our country in any capacity. Our program offer governmental and social organizational help, including but not limited to: In The Grove, VA, VetBiz Central, LearnKey Veterans Services, Workforce Development Vet’s Division, Land Bank, SVMAP and Cars4vets. The advisory board currently consists of a CPA, Insurance Agent, Restoration Company, Attorney, Financial Advisor, and a Realtor.
We have started 2 pilot programs with a couple of our first clients! One has moved into her new home http://eepurl.com/yZon9 (her story) provided by one of our partnering organizations, SV MAP.
All donations to the General Fund http://www.ourhometransitional.org/apps/donations/ go towards these pilot programs.
Our Home Transitional offers a family environment. We bring a sense of comfort, belonging and stability by offering our clients household jobs and chores as a family unit. While in our program, resident clients will be provided various types of assistance through partnering organizations to transition to civilian life and self- sufficiency. One of our goals with SVMAP is to acquire several other homes to provide a haven for our clients, while at the same time, revitalizing and beautifying the City of Flint. These homes will require major renovation as most of the empty homes in Flint have been stripped. We will work with DE Recycling as well as dozens of local residence ready to volunteer!
Most importantly, we are in need of funding to bring our dream to fruition. Due to the sequestration cuts of 2013, there were no government funds available for new veteran organizations for 2013. And as of 2014 there are few grants available for transitional housing. There are no transitional housing centers in Genesee County for female veterans, with or without children. There are over 150 homeless, or soon to be homeless, female veterans in our surrounding area of Michigan. It is imperative that Our Home Transitional is up and running immediately, as our women veterans will be coming home soon.
Help us give these women a place to call their own.
We will be launching an online campaign via EndlessCrowds.com http://lnkd.in/bKbvMjJ on Jan 31st to help us raise 50k. http://www.endlesscrowds.com/OHT
