Hearts & Homes for Veterans thanks Noah’s Ark
To the editor:
Hearts & Homes for Veterans, Inc. (HHV), a 501 3 nonprofit corporation, thanks the Noah’s Ark Thrift Shop for its very generous $500.00 shopping voucher for homeless and very-low income Veterans and their Families.
This shopping voucher fills a critical gap in Hearts & Homes for Veterans, Inc.’s Homeless Veterans. HHV works very closely with the Lee County Department of Veterans Affairs Healthcare Center Social Workers for Homeless Veterans moving into subsidized rental apartments.
HHV provides everything else that the Veterans and their families need, such as furniture, household products like lamps and tables, linens, and cleaning products.
Hearts & Homes for Veterans, Inc.’s model is Veterans helping Veterans. Homeless Veterans cannot attend the counseling to enable them to become productive citizens until they are in safe, affordable housing.
Hearts & Homes for Veterans, Inc. recently purchased a 10,000 square Service Center and Warehouse to store the above items and Wells Fargo Bank donated a house to HHV for transitional living quarters for three Homeless Veterans.
HHV intends to apply for additional foreclosed houses in the future. The above Service Center will provide shower facilities and washing machines and dryers for Homeless Veterans and well as a mailbox so that they will have an address to apply for VA benefits.
The Service Center will also have a dental clinic and barber shop staffed by volunteers. HHV also provides clothing to Veterans and their Families in need.
Hearts & Homes for Veterans, Inc. recently donated a car to a Marine, his wife, and their three children. The car will enable the Marine to go to and from work and to take all family members to medical and dental appointments.
Hearts & Homes for Veterans would appreciate all donations and volunteers for the Service Center and Warehouse. To donate or volunteer please visit our website at www.hhveterans.com or mail donations to 1409 21st Lane, Cape Coral, FL 33990.
