YOU CAN HELP WITH A DONATION OF FUNDS OR VOLUNTEER
Community Housing Sonoma County is galvanizing the community to help us with a $340,000 funding gap to finish the construction of Veterans Village at the County which will establish 14 innovative "Tiny Homes" to permanently house 14 homeless veterans. Please join us with your donation or help to WELCOME HOME these 14 veterans for the holidays!
Veterans Village at the County
Veterans Village at the County is still in the planning stage. To assist with this project, we need cash donations and volunteers. We also need volunteers who can help seek donations, assist with landscaping and other project needs. Sonoma County has committed to providing housing for its homeless veterans. Housing our nation’s veterans is not only a moral imperative, it is an economic one. The cost to treat a homeless veteran at an emergency room and what typically can become a longer hospital stay, or the cost to arrest a veteran and house them in jail for a night, a week or longer far exceeds the cost per day to provide housing and support to assist our veterans in returning to an independent life. Upwards of $4,000 per veteran per hospital stay, or $138 per veteran per day in jail compared to $14.30 per veteran per day at Veterans Village at the County makes clear economic sense for supportive housing serving homeless veterans.
