Funding Transitional Housing for Homeless Veterans
“The Hulston Family Foundation has been and continues to be an incredible partner in our mission to end Veteran homelessness. Their support has impacted the lives of hundreds of Veterans. The people at the organization have been just as impressive as their generosity. Veterans Community Project is grateful to have the Foundation as a partner, and more, we appreciate the collaborative spirit of the Foundation which resulted in pairing VCP together with the Urban Rangers who have dedicated hundreds of volunteer hours in support of our mission.”
Bryan Meyer, CEO and Co-Founder
Built by veterans for veterans, the Veterans Community Project is home to the VCP Village where a specialized community of tiny homes combined with onsite services has been created to get homeless veterans off the street and transitioned to permanent housing.
Since 2017, the Hulston Family Foundation has made multiple contributions towards the construction, furnishing and management of this Transitional Housing Program. The VCP Village is 49 fully-equipped, high quality tiny homes.
The Veterans Community Project has been able to not only serve veterans with housing solutions, but also with case management services including health and wellness, income stability, educational training, fiscal understanding training and a network of support. The continual funding from the Hulston Family Foundation has backed this program from its beginning days, helping veterans go from homeless to having a permanent residency in just 12-14 months.
Since the opening of the VCP Village, 76 veterans have been housed. Also, 33 veterans have transitioned out of the VCP Village and into permanent housing for a success rate of 70%. Compared to the industry trend of 30-40% success rate, the Veterans Community Project has done an exceptional job at utilizing the grant provided by the Hulston Family Foundation to fund the transitional housing of homeless veterans.
