    HomeAid Inland Empire (HAIE) recently committed $40,000 to U.S.VETS to continue renovation work on the facility that temporary houses homeless veterans at March ARB in Riverside. The financial support for the U.S.VETS phase two renovation project included a $25,000 grant from the Lennar Charitable Housing Foundation (LCHF), $10,000 through HomeAid America from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, and $5,000 from the Riverside County Building Industry Association (BIA) in conjunction with HomeAid Inland Empire, the non-profit charity of the BIA. “Home Aid Inland Empire is pleased to have been able to secure this critical funding that will allow us to continue the much-needed renovation work at the U.S.VETS March ARB facility,” commented HAIE Executive Director Ray Osborne, in announcing the funding support for the project. Osborne also announced that a $6,000 grant from the Masco Foundation through HomeAid America has just been received to provide additional shelter development funds for this important renovation project to provide help to homeless veterans in the Inland Empire. As a result of HomeAid’s fundraising efforts, work has been started on the renovation of at least 16 more apartments, housing up to 44 emergency and transitional living beds. HomeAid Inland Empire recently completed renovation work on 12 apartments at the March ARB location that provided 24 transitional beds for homeless veterans to utilize as they work to rebuild their lives and achieve self sufficiency through the U.S.VETS VIP and CHAMPS housing, counseling and job training programs.

  • HomeAid and U.S.VETS Bring New Veteran Housing to Inland Empire

    In partnership with HomeAid Inland Empire (HAIE), U.S.VETS recently dedicated five newly-renovated apartments that will provide temporary housing for homeless veterans at the U.S.VETS – Inland Empire facility at March ARB in Riverside, California. “U.S.VETS is thankful for the outstanding work that has been done by HomeAid in the past few months to help us provide a comfortable and safe place for the veteran clients we serve at this facility, and for the opportunity they provided to have five of the resident veterans here involved with doing some of the renovation work,” says President & CEO Stephen Peck. “We are looking forward to continuing to work with HomeAid Inland Empire in the months ahead to make additional improvements to the facility,” he added. For Army veteran James Andrews, moving into one of the new apartments marks a new chapter in his life. James found himself homeless, living in his truck and bouncing from place to place, after a series of devastating setbacks. The loss of his business in the recession, his mother’s death from cancer, and a diagnosis of Ménières disease made it difficult for James to stay stable. He came to U.S.VETS last summer, and has been working hard to get back on his feet ever since. With the availability of these new apartments, James is finally able to feel back in control. “It’s kind of weird to be in my own place again,” he says. “It’s been such a long time.” To read more about James, check out […]
