Empowering Veterans to move from crises to self-sufficiency.
The VTC serves approximately 110 Veterans at any given time in our housing programs, and we are seeking to add more capacity to the properties and houses we own. There is a significant need for facilities that accommodate people with accessibility challenges as our population ages. The average age is 60 years old for the Veterans at VTC, and our ability to house people who use mobility aids is limited. The construction of ADUs, each with four bedrooms and fully ADA compliant, will allow us to increase our available housing units for Veterans who are facing homelessness and housing insecurity. Our programs include wraparound services for our residents, available for any Veterans who join the VTC. Adding fully ADA compliant ADUs to our housing stock is a manner for us to rapidly increase capacity and provide a robust safety net for our heroes. Please join us in this important mission.
I spent 32 years in prison, paroled in 2022. The Case Managers here are really good at what they do, and they can pick up on when you are starting to lose focus. They bring it to your attention that you're not doing what you need to be doing for yourself. Coming through here helped me buy my car and helped me with my furry four-legged son, Bandit. I have an actual life out here. I just went back to Michigan and got to see my son whom I had not seen at that point in probably about 36 years. I knew my family loved me - I did not know the extent of that love that they have for me. My kids help keep me focused on my hard work to get out of prison, the good I’m doing now. I have a fabulous extended family courtesy of VTC.
