Veterans Are Foundation is the first to conceive of a comprehensive approach to issues surrounding the transition of financially challenged Military Veterans and First Responders (Police - Fire & Rescue - EMS) from public service to civilian and retired living. These are our "Heroes of Service" and there is no acceptable reason so many are being left behind.
VAF will manage the process of developing multiple communities throughout the United States refered to as “Veterans Villages”. A Veterans Village is a community in which our Heroes of Service can live, find employment, or just kick back and enjoy retirement!
Individual sites will be selected based on criteria which include:
- Convenience to VA Hospitals, Clinics and basic community services
- Access to public transportation
- Diverse recreational opportunities
- A low cost of living
Veterans Villages will be comprised of various housing options such as:
- Single-family homes
Our Villages also cater to our disabled Heroes of Service. Special attention will be paid to accessibility, preserving green space and providing safe and walkable neighborhoods. Light commercial space will also be considered when appropriate.
Veterans Villages are built using energy efficient products, green sustainable materials and proven construction techniques. Our communities will result in low total cost of development, a reduction in environmental impact and overall long term operating costs.
