The purpose of this program is to help homeless and hard-working, low-income veterans and their families to obtain housing and ultimately achieve stability, combat community deterioration, reduce crime due to poverty and hopelessness and build stronger neighborhoods in the process. To allow veterans to go from homeless to homeownership.
To realize that vision, the organization completed a strategic planning effort that resulted in a comprehensive plan for the acquisition of homes in the community to house homeless veterans and their families in need of housing.
Our Real Estate Acquisition Department performs the research and analysis to acquire properties from Real Estate Donations, Landbanks, Auctions, HUD/ VA foreclosures and motivated sellers , they determine which properties are a good fit for our program.
When a property is selected it is purchased, renovated and then matched up with the eligible veterans that are prescreen with a case management and supportive services.
The property then goes to our Property Management Division to be Maintained and Managed for the veteran and company. HUD VASH will subsidize the veterans lease during the transition.
Our plan is to acquire reasonable, safe and sustainable housing units either through donations from property owners, direct purchase of distressed properties or from HUD and other agencies.Ideally, these homes will offer access to public transportation, providing opportunities for employment and access to social services and support groups.
After property renovation, there is an application process and financial suitability testing for people that are interested in participating in the program. We also rely on and partner with other approved 501(c)(3) organizations, government housing and veteran’s agencies to source and screen potential qualifying renters.
