Our Home Transitional: Female Veteran Transitional Housing
Our Home Transitional (OHT) consists of a diverse team leading the way in offering transitional housing for female veterans coming back from war, or serving our country in any capacity. Our program will offer governmental and social organizational help, including but not limited to: In The Grove, VA, VetBiz Central, LearnKey Veterans Services, Workforce Development Vet’s Division, Land Bank, SVMAP and Cars4vets. The OHT advisory board currently consists of a CPA, Insurance Agent, Restoration Company, Attorney, Financial Advisor, and a Realtor.
Most importantly, we are in need of funding to bring our dream to fruition. Due to the sequestration, there are no govt funds available for new vet orgs for 2013. There are no transitional housing centers in Genesee County for female veterans, with or without children. There are over 150 homeless, or soon to be homeless, female veterans in our surrounding area of Michigan. It is imperative that Our Home Transitional is up and running immediately, as our women veterans will be coming home soon.
We have started 3 pilot programs with our first female veterans! One has moved into her new home http://eepurl.com/yZon9 (her story) and the other 2 will be moving into their own homes provided by one of our partnering organizations, SV MAP, very soon. All donations to the General Fund http://www.ourhometransitional.org/apps/donations/ through this year will go towards these pilot programs.
Our Home Transitional offers a family environment. We bring a sense of comfort, belonging and stability by offering our clients household jobs and chores as a family unit. While in OHT, resident clients will be provided various types of assistance to transition to civilian life and self- sufficiency. As OHT is up and running successfully, we will be acquiring several other homes to provide a haven for our families, while at the same time, revitalizing and beautifying the City of Flint. We plan to acquire several abandoned or foreclosed homes in the Genesee County, MI area within the coming months. These homes will require major renovation as most of the empty homes in Flint have been stripped. OHT will work with DE Recycling as well as dozens of local residence ready to volunteer!
Help OHT give these women a place to call their own. http://www.gofundme.com/For-Our-Heroes
