MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF HUNDREDS OF MEN AND WOMEN
WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY AND NEED OUR HELP.
The VFC provides full complement of carefully selected NEW “right-sized” furniture and essential household goods to help homeless veterans successfully transition into permanent housing. The VA does a great job moving homeless veterans into permanent housing, but they have no ability to provide furniture or household goods.
We often find the veteran sleeping on the floor in an empty apartment with no ability to prepare a meal or even make a cup of coffee. Through very selective purchasing, discounts and donations from retailers, and the support of our volunteers, we are able to provide transitioning veterans with a full complement of new furniture and household goods for under one thousand dollars. Each kit includes:
- Full complement of bedroom and living room furniture
- Kitchenware, including dishes, cookware and small appliances
- Linens, towels and a hygiene kit
This gives veterans what they need to make their apartment a home It gives them a new lease on life, and often makes the difference between a successful fresh start and a return to the street.
