BlueStar Family Homes: We support all veterans at risk of becoming homeless.

They Fought to Keep Our Home Safe… Let’s Fight to Give Them a Safe Home!
Imagine leaving the hell and misery that is war and coming back home to the overwhelming stress of securing shelter for yourself and your children. Too often this is the sad truth for many of our women veterans.
Click on the video to the left or this link: https://youtu.be/AIM80W16w0Y and listen as one mom tells her story.
Did you know that… according to the V.A., the #1 need of women veterans is affordable, permanent housing…and the risk of women veterans becoming homeless is 4X greater than men?
Did you know that… more than 280,000 women have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan or to other war zones? Or that they flew combat aircraft, manned missile placements, served on ships and performed other combat roles?
Did you know that… there are only a handful of permanent housing programs for all veterans nationwide? Women are often housed with men, creating an inappropriate and stressful environment for a mom and her kids.
We are BlueStar Family Homes (BFH), a division of NorthBay Family Homes (NFH). Since 1978, NFH has built similar affordable housing projects, using our expertise to develop, fund, and build over 4,000, below market rate homes with a total investment of $154,000,000.
Currently, we are in the process of selecting and acquiring several properties in Northern California to provide 1,000 new apartments, tailored to house women veterans and their children in the mid-to-lower income, at-risk segment.
Here is how you can help:
#1 Donate Now You can help us kick this project off. Your donation matters, whatever the amount!
o Your $75 helps secure a playground on site so a veteran mother’s children can play near home under a parent’s watch.
o Your $100 buys a bedroom door. That door opens to a child’s room that provides the safety and security they need to have a fair start on a good life.
#2 Share This With Others Who Care
