"In order to minimize maintenance costs we chose to build with reinforced concrete. The monolithic Dome design promises to provide not only a structure that can withstand strong winds, but is also very efficient in use of electricity. Because of these features, and others, we will be able to provide homes rent free, utilities paid and furnished to those who have served our country honorably and have no income, while they get the training they need to get the jobs they deserve. Only that can restore the pride they felt while in uniform.”
Our unique, sustainable design exemplifies our commitment to developing a project that stands as an ideal model for cultivating the desired sense of community, safety, and inspiration.
The bond that is created through the service of your Country is a powerful force. 2 of our board members are Veterans themselves, and we hope to continue that service.
There are few greater tragedies than the fact that we let our fellow humans go starving and homeless, all because they hit some bad luck or made a few mistakes.
Only with help of volunteers and other partners, will we be able to achieve such a great undertaking. So, with the risk of being cliché:
WE WANT YOU!
