Veterans Projects

When we started our organization we had several initiatives that we knew we wanted to be able to help with. One of these initiatives was to help our veterans. At the time we had no idea how a 2x4 would help a veteran until we uncovered a story about a tiny home village for homeless veterans in Racine Wisconsin. We knew at that moment we wanted to offer our help by providing all the needed 2x4's to build these tiny homes. We donated over 1200 signed 2x4's to the Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin. We didn't stop there. We found another local veterans tiny home project in Kansas City, MO. We reached out to this group Veterans Community Project VCP. We explained to them we would like to help by providing enough 2x4's that would build 52 tiny homes.  In September 2016 we delivered 6000 2x4's to help build these tiny homes for VCP! As word was getting around what we had been doing to help these tiny home villages for homeless veterans other organizations started reaching out to us for our help by providing our 2x4's. To date we have donated over 12,000 signed 2x4's to these tiny home Veterans projects across the US. Along this journey, we've been asked when we will help our local veterans with tiny homes, and last September, we built our first tiny home in Quincy for a female veteran. On September the 11th the Illinois Army National Guard moved this tiny home from the Adam's County Fair Grounds into the city of Quincy and was strategically placed on its permanent foundation on the corner of 6th and Cherry. We did not stop there over Veterans Day weekend in November of last year, a group of volunteers came together to help build our 2nd tiny home for another deserving veteran in need.  Our plan is to have a total of five tiny homes for veterans on this block that will forever change the neighborhood, our community, and most importantly our veterans.
