See and Be Seen

Thursday, April 11th marked the Grand Opening of the Alternative Veterans Solutions Resource Center (AVSCR).  The AVSCR will be a one-stop resource center for veterans and their families that will give support and assistance from organizations that include VetBiz Central, Career Alliance, United Way, Community Mental Health and Goodwill Industries of Mid-Michigan.

The Grand Opening was a wonderful event that brought together the many organizations that will be providing their resources, the press, the public, and most importantly some of the veterans and their families that will be served.  This was a great beginning for the Alternative Veterans Solutions Resource Center and another valuable tool for veterans in need.

Alternative Veterans Solutions Resource Center is located at 4400 S. Saginaw St., Suite 1375, Flint, MI.

Transitional Housing for homeless female veterans and their children in MI.

Transitional Home for Homeless Female Vets (Phase 1) and those with children (Phase 2)
Description
The plan is to purchase & renovate a large abandoned or foreclosed house and renovate, possibly like the photo of the mansion pictured, for our first transitional home to be known as, OUR HOME. It will be a place where our Female vets come to when they are facing challenges & are in need of a place to call Home. 

While here, they will be provided various types of assistance in efforts to transition to civilian life and self sufficiency. As home one is up and running successfully, we will be acquiring several others on the block/area to provide a haven for our family.

Training and assistance programs to be provided by the County and Federal Government will include: Job training/placement, MSW, educational training, and home placement assistance, to name a few. 

We also view this as an opportunity to revitalize & beautify the local Flint, MI area, as the ultimate goal is to have several large houses within Genesee County, some urban and others located in a rural setting. We will all work together and partner with other neighborhood organizations to keep the areas clean, beautiful and safe.

We have entered our Executive Summary the for GLEQ Event, (see Events tab)
