HELP VETERANS HELPING DISABLED VETERANS
Victory Village was started in honor of Marine Corp. WWII Veteran, Lt. Don Singer. Lt. Singer was promoted from sergent to a commissioned officer for his heroism as a tank commander on Iwo Jima and was an inspiration to many for his bravery in combat. Victory Village is a program to provide transitional living, substance abuse recovery and re-employment training for disabled Veterans in Northern California. Victory Village is in the process of acquiring a former children's home in Butte County and is in need of funding to fix up the property. Cleaning, painting, repairs and landscaping are needed to rehabilitate the five houses and many bunkhouses and ranch buildings to provide a safe and tranquil environment where substance abuse recovery can happen. There are an estimated 9,000 disabled Veterans in California struggling with substance abuse and other disorders such as PTSD, who are homeless and hungery. This Veterans operated volunteer program will make a major impact on helping our nation's heros recover from their disabilities and become able to live the life they deserve as productive members of society once again. The facility will provide recovery housing and services for up to 60 Veterans per year. Our website is www.victoryvillagevets.org.
