What's there:

The New Beginnings Veteran Women Shelter has been created to provide a safe haven to female veterans with children who are struggling to adjust to civilian life. The shelter and transitional program can house four women and their children in a remodeled duplex. Once remodeled, the house will have four bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and a large living-dining area. The duplex is located near existing New Beginnings transitional housing, which provides a home to 80 adult males and 14 females. Services include meals, education, job training and placement, and case management.

What's needed:

The nearly 80-year-old building that will house the New Beginnings Veteran Women Shelter needs renovation and repair:

  • Interior wall replacements.
  • New carpeting.
  • Energy-Star-rated air-conditioning units.
  • Handicap-accessible modifications.
  • New roof.
