Home Depot Foundation Awards $1.6 Million for Veterans Housing

The Home Depot Foundation has announced grants totaling $1.6 million to ten Volunteers of America affiliates to address the housing needs of former service members.

The grant will enable ten VoA affiliate homeless veterans programs in seven states to refurbish or build three hundred and fifty-four housing units for veterans, including seventy-nine earmarked specifically for women veterans. Grant recipients include Volunteers of America National Services, which will provide supportive housing for sixty-seven male and female veterans in Joliet, Illinois; Volunteers of America Greater Los Angeles, for transitional housing for a hundred and four male and female veterans and their families at two sites in Los Angeles; Volunteers of America North Louisiana, for transitional housing for forty male and female veterans in Shreveport; and Volunteers of America Pennsylvania, for the renovation of twenty-five single-family homes for veterans and their families in Dauphin County.

Since announcing its partnership with VoA in 2011, the Home Depot Foundation has awarded nearly $10 million to the organization to improve housing solutions for homeless veterans and their families, including more than four hundred units for women veterans and their families.
