PERMANENT HOUSING

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

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.

Phase Two, The Hidden Wounds Project

The Hidden Wounds Project will build twelve sustainable, high-quality one-bedroom apartments for homeless veterans in Sumter County, South Carolina.

Along with the apartments, the Hidden Wounds Project will provide supportive services, such as case management, counseling, community engagement, and job training, to name a few. We will be located near the Veterans Administration (VA) clinic, which will allow us to transport the veterans to and from medical and supportive services provided by the VA.

These essential components keep the veterans on track to overcome the emotional and physical trauma that brings them to the point of homelessness while living independently in security and safety.

Phase Three

Our initial goal is to provide homes to more than 100 veterans by 2025 and expand our program to other communities nationally by working with developers and local governments in communities with high levels of homeless veteran populations.

All donations are tax-deductible.
