Homes For Heroes

Earlier this month, national and local leaders joined Home For Good in kicking off Homes For Heroes, an effort to identify 1,000 landlords to house veterans in need. As shared by Jim Perley a property owner with Western America Properties, “landlords are literally the last leg on the way home for our Veterans.” This has never been so true as today when over 500 Veterans with vouchers-in-hand, that provide both rental subsidy and supportive services, have no place to go at night. Significant resources have been invested in L.A. towards the goal of ending Veteran homelessness in 2015 and providers are working together to efficiently identify Veterans and their needs, but the critical link to housing through landlords and housing developers is what will get us over the finish line.

JOIN US in supporting ending Veteran homelessness by doing your part:

  1. Talk to your landlord and other property owners you know about dedicating units to Veterans with housing vouchers
  2. Share our flier on your Twitter and Facebook using #HomesForHeroes
  3. Dedicate available units in your properties to Veterans through Homes For Heroes at www.unitedwayla.org/homes-for-heroes
  4. Donate to move-in costs for Veterans
