Mission & Impact

What is our Mission?

Our goal is to develop a sustainable funding stream that will allow us to provide flexible, self-sustained housing vouchers for veterans. Additionally, we are committed to broadening home ownership prospects for our veteran tenants through financial education and VA Loan product coaching.

What is our Vision?

We aspire to build an NPO that won’t rely on donations or grants after the initial phase. Our plan is to own a mix of market rate and affordable housing projects, and to use the profits from these properties to subsidize housing units for at-risk and disabled veterans in perpetuity.

We aspire to build an NPO that won't rely on donations or grants after the initial phase. Our plan is to own a mix of market rate and affordable housing projects, and to use the profits from these properties to subsidize housing units for at-risk and disabled veterans in perpetuity.

A significant number of veterans, including many who are disabled and unable to work, live below the poverty line yet are ineligible for federally funded affordable housing programs due to strict income assessments. Disabled veterans receive pensions that push them just over the income eligibility threshold for many programs, leaving them vulnerable to housing instability. Our NPO utilizes the property tax advantages available to 501c3 organizations, thereby lowering the operating costs associated with owning multifamily properties. The tax savings generated from this approach are used to subsidize housing for low-income veterans facing housing insecurity.

Our active involvement will encompass business operations related to acquiring existing multifamily properties and developing new ones. In the initial phases, we will actively seek donations that can be utilized for acquiring properties independently or forming partnerships with for-profit developers and investors.

Leveraging our expertise from both the public and private sectors, we will contribute value to these partnerships and generate fees or equity from the projects we engage in. The revenue generated will be reinvested in additional properties, ultimately expanding the number of affordable units we can provide to the veteran community.

At the organization level, our activities will primarily be funded through fees earned from developing or acquiring new multifamily properties. In essence, our operational funding model is similar to traditional for-profit real estate companies. However, the surplus profits we make will be allocated towards subsidizing housing for veterans. Donations will never be used for recurring operational costs like salaries and office space.

We are committed to reserving the maximum feasible number of units for veterans in every affordable housing project we contribute to, and within all market rate properties in our portfolio. We're also dedicated to developing specialized housing projects specifically for veterans. Our veteran specific projects will include targeted supportive services to address unique veteran needs, such as transportation to VA appointments, benefits counseling, and other essential on-site services. The co-location of a substantial number of veterans is crucial for the effective provision of these services.

We commit 100% of all donations to the purchase or development of multi-family properties, which are designed to include affordable housing options for disabled veterans. However, if a donor stipulates a specific purpose for their donation – which still aligns with our mission, such as directly supporting veteran units or financing beneficial services for veterans within a property – we respect and adhere to their wishes. We intend to use our 501c3 tax advantages to reduce the cost of housing for veterans at our properties. Nonetheless, if a property struggles financially, we may temporarily utilize some of these tax benefits to stabilize the property and meet investor expectations. This strategy aids in preventing payment delays and maintains the property until it can independently sustain itself.

How will this be accomplished?

We will be actively involved in business operations linked to the acquisition of existing multifamily properties and development of new multifamily properties. During the early stages, we’ll seek donations that can be used to acquire new properties on our own or to build partnerships with for-profit developers and investors. We’ll leverage our public and private sector expertise to add value to these partnerships and generate fees or equity from the projects we’re involved in. The revenue generated will be reinvested in additional properties, which will ultimately increase the number of affordable units we can offer the veteran community.
