VAlanthropy will build apartments to increase the availability of affordable housing in our communities in which veterans will be proud to live. We will provide permanent, affordable housing to those veterans in need of comfortable accommodation. Our apartments will not detract from the nearby neighborhoods. Tennent participation, VA case management, and a code of conduct will ensure support to meet our veteran residents’ unique needs.
As a nonprofit organization, rent will remain affordable, and there will be no time restriction on how long someone can occupy one of our apartments as long as they abide by the terms and conditions of the lease and code of conduct. There will be three phases to expand the supply of necessary housing for homeless US Military Veterans
and other low-income veterans with disabling conditions or other significant challenges at ongoing risk of homelessness.
Phase one is underway. Our directors, who receive no compensation, purchased our first two-bedroom, 2 ½ bath home near the Dorn VA Medical Center.
In February 2023, a female veteran with two children will occupy the first of what we hope will be many more such homes.
Our phase one goal is to continue to buy or build 1–3-bedroom homes.
VAlanthropy will secure land, develop, build, and manage an initial 12-unit community in Columbia, SC. The first community will be located near the Dorn regional VA facilities allowing veterans access to benefits entitlements.
Our initial goal is to provide homes to more than 100 veterans by 2024 and expand our program to other communities nationally by working with developers and local governments in communities with high levels of homeless veteran populations.
