America asks a lot of its military men and women. And when they return home, too many of our beloved veterans find that returning to civilian life is even more challenging than being on active duty.
Over 500,000 veterans are homeless.
Veterans do not integrate, they isolate; which is why they so desperately need their own unique physical location with a specialized environment to optimize their recovery from homelessness — a place that provides veteran-specific recovery activities, resources and programs.
They served us, and now it’s time to serve them.
City Mission’s goal is to do just that – by providing an environment that allows veterans to work together, to grow and to heal, thus leading them back to independent living while in the safety of a serene, Christ-centered environment. We want to assist even more veterans and greatly improve their chances of a successful transition to independence.
Groundbreaking for City Mission’s 22-bed Veterans Residential Facility will take place September 7, 2016 at 10 a.m., with estimated completion in June 2017.
Please consider helping fund the Veterans Residential Facility and the veteran initiatives being developed at City Mission by attending the Inaugural “Mission Possible!” morning 5K Race and evening Dinner/Dance on September 17, 2016, presented by Northwood Charitable Foundation.
