VETERANS

The City Mission is grateful for each individual who has served in the military, and because of this, we have devoted a 22-bed residence in our program specifically to this population: The Crabtree-Kovacicek Patriot House, opened in July 2018.

Our veteran residents participate in the Life Recovery Program and also receive care from local veterans’ services. Research shows that veterans recover best when they are in fellowship with, and surrounded by other veterans. The City Mission continues to build and strengthen relationships with Veterans’ organizations and has created a program that meets the specific needs of this population.

 

They served us. Now let’s serve them.

The Crabtree-Kovacicek Patriot House

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 40,000 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. Now let’s 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. That is the reason City Mission built a new 22-bed shelter for homeless veterans, The Patriot House.
