The Barracks will be offering 10 rooms to our homeless Veterans in our area. The rooms are meant to be a short-term solution and its purpose is to assist our men and woman to get back on their feet. This will not be a long-term shelter. What we mean by that is we want the Veterans who enter our doors to want to help themselves before we can help them. We will supply them with all the tools necessary to help them get back on their feet but at the end, it’s up to the Veteran themselves to be motivated enough to help themselves. Our rooms will be 1-man rooms connected with a full bathroom which is shared to an adjacent room. All the 8 rooms have been sponsored by local organizations and individuals who will also paint and decorate their assigned rooms. There will be 2 separate female rooms set aside for any female Veteran at all times.
We also will have 4 family rooms that can be utilized as overnight stay rooms for any families with Veterans staying at the VA hospital or any transient Veteran family passing through our area. These can house up to 6 people per room which also have a private bathroom with shower.
