Join us in supporting homeless Veterans in the city of Corona
Fighting Veteran Homelessness in the City of Corona
The Veterans Housing Alliance has long been an advocate for Veterans and their dreams of becoming homeowners. Our organization was founded on the idea of helping as many local Veterans as we can as they aspire to achieve the American Dream.
Owning a home can provide an unbeatable sense of security, comfort and financial stability for a Veteran and their family. For our nations hero’s, this security is extremely important as they continue to fight the hardships that come from transitioning from service to civilian life. Veterans who aspire to be homeowners all start and come from different paths.
In the past, we have provided financial aid (in
the form of a grant) to Veterans who are ready to purchase. These housing
grants provide that last bit of help to get them over the finish line. Today,
we are excited to announce we are developing a new program to help Veterans who
are completely homeless and are looking for help.
Stopping Veteran Homelessness, One City At A Time
Earlier this year, the city of Corona took a major step forward in city’s new Homeless Strategic Plan. They submitted a 5-year homeless grant request to the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and were approved! In this plan, is also a pledge to help Veterans who are recognized by the city as homeless.
With new funding to the city and further investments in shelter, services, and permanent housing resources for homeless Veterans, the Veterans Housing Alliance is proud to announce a starting project donation of $10,000 to aid in this new program. The goal is to support homeless Veterans when they are ready to transition from the city’s emergency shelter to permanent housing. The funds raised for this program will directly help homeless Veterans with move-in costs. Such as, but not limited to first/last month’s rent and security deposits.
“Considering the sacrifice they made to serve our great nation, the City of Corona is truly honored to partner with the Veterans Housing Alliance to serve our homeless Veterans” said Karen Roper, City of Corona Homeless Solutions Manager.
We are excited to start this new program and look forward to
working with many public and private entities as we all strive for a similar
goal. We are asking all of our donors and sponsors who are able, please
consider a donation to help support our efforts to help get homeless
Veterans back on their feet. Every amount helps us get closer to
achieving our goal!
This campaign will run through most of 2021.
