Home of the Brave Foundation
Milford, Delaware – The Home of the Brave Foundation, Inc. is in contract negotiations with God’s Way to Recovery to lease a property which will be used by The Home of the Brave to establish a female veteran’s transitional living facility. The God’s Way to Recovery property located at 9 Causey Avenue in Milford, Delaware was used by God’s Way to Recovery as a homeless male transitional living facility. Once negotiations are completed the goal is to sign a lease in the fall of 2013 and welcome the first homeless female veteran in the winter of 2013/2014. Fundraising efforts are underway to ensure this pilot program is successfully launched.
Home of the Brave has been providing transitional housing for male veterans for twenty one years. This facility is located off Route 1, south of Milford (6632 Sharps RD, Milford). Recognizing a need for a similar facility for female veterans, Home of the Brave decided to seek funds to stand-up such a program.
God’s Way to Recovery was hopeful that another non-profit organization would lease the facility to continue to provide housing for the homeless. This property meets the needs established by Home of the Brave for a female veteran transitional living facility. Once the lease agreement is signed, Home of the Brave will begin a two year pilot program to validate the scope of housing needed to support the homeless female veteran population.
Home of the Brave Foundation, Inc. is a 501 C 3, non-profit, whose mission is to reduce homelessness among our military veteran population and to help veterans successfully transition into permanent housing and personal independence.
