Together Treasure Valley, a collaboration of area businesses, continues to invest in our communities and pledged $50,000 in 2018 to match a Veterans Housing Project fundraiser. By matching donations dollar for dollar up to $50,000, the Together partners committed to helping homeless veterans in our community find a safe place to live.
Ada County exceeds the nation average with veterans being 14% of our homeless population. Too often many of our nation’s veterans are returning home from serving their country to find a lack of resources to help them get back on their feet.
The Home Partnership Foundation launched a fundraising campaign seeking community support to help house those that have bravely served this country. The funding was for support of the development of a new housing facility to provide a lower-barrier or “housing first” model alternative for our veterans in need of services and support to overcome the issues that may have led to their homelessness.
The 27-unit apartment complex, Valor Pointe, is expected to open its doors to the community’s most vulnerable veterans in 2020. The complex will offer easy access to public transportation and will include amenities such as laundry facilities, meeting and recreational space, a computer lab, an external courtyard, a live-in manager and a 24-hour surveillance system.
