Expansion Plans and Fundraising Goals
For more than two decades, Veterans Guest House has served thousands of people – housing everyone from newborns to 90-year old’s. Veterans Guest House gives our veterans and their family members more than just a warm bed. We give them peace of mind knowing they are close to each other.
Our plans for future growth are underway. Our current plan is to build an approximately 12,000 square foot building, which will be adjacent to our current guest house. Through this capital project, we will go from 17 beds to 33 beds. The expanded Guest House is scheduled to open spring of 2018!
Our goal is to raise $6 million – of which $4 million will be used for construction and $2 million will be used to establish an endowment to cover a portion of the ongoing annual operations and maintenance costs.
If we do not grow, we will have to turn people away, which we never want to do. With the more recent military actions and ongoing military service, we know that Veterans Guest House will be needed for years to come.
To our knowledge, the Veterans Guest House is the only facility of its kind in the country. Veterans Guest House is privately funded and receives no government funding. We are supported by companies, foundations, and individuals who care about veterans and their families.
