Veterans Place empowers veterans’ transition from homeless to home, ending the cycle of homelessness, and assists all at-risk veterans to become engaged, valuable citizens who contribute to their communities.

Since 2018, Colcom Foundation has been a consistent supporter of Veterans Place, providing vital funding essential for the renovation of on-site townhouses. Colcom has also supported the construction of a new multi-purpose facility to expand services at Veterans Place. This new facility will increase the capacity to provide additional transitional housing, as well as introduces a wellness center and on-site health screenings for veterans in the community. With Colcom’s funding, this facility will become a beacon of hope, offering comprehensive assistance to those who have served their country selflessly. This partnership symbolizes a collective commitment to honor and support our veterans, ensuring they receive the care and resources they deserve.
