VOA Awarded with Bridge Housing Grant

The Volunteers of America was recently awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide transitional housing at Freedom Hall in Sheridan. Freedom Hall is an 11 bed men’s transitional housing facility for honorably discharged veterans. The 24 hour facility includes a full kitchen, a laundry room, dining and living space, entertainment, and more. According to a news release, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs has placed an emphasis on homeless prevention and rapid rehousing for Veterans. Freedom Hall is part of their plan to end Veteran homelessness.

VOA believes that housing is the first step for successful reintegration to society and to employment. The grant also awarded funds to Independence Hall in Billings, MT, which is a similar establishment. To learn more follow this link www.voanr.org/veteran-services.
