HOMES FOR HEALING
Providing Essential Furnishings For Success
Through this program we provide household goods and new or gently-used furniture to formerly homeless Veterans.
In recent years the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has helped reduce the number of homeless Veterans by a significant amount.
This reduction was achieved by HUD's Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program, which combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
MMIA has a core group of volunteers who focus their efforts and time on this program.
They ensure the donated furniture is fully functional and repair items when feasible. This team also picks up donations and delivers selected items to Veterans.
Items that are donated, but not able to be utilized in small apartments are sold and this allows us to purchase items still needed to complete our Veteran deliveries, such as a new mattress or bathroom supplies.
