Heroes Village Fact Sheet



Building Affordable and Dignified Homes for Veterans

As part of its “Plan to End Veteran Homelessness,” the Veterans Administra-tion (VA) estimates there is a critical need for about 90,000 units of perma-nent housing for homeless and low-income veterans.

Heroes Village intends to build 30,000 single-family homes nationwide by 2015 in developments of approximately 100 homes each. We will also be constructing transitional and rental housing for Veterans for those not ready to purchase a home.

The program assists very low income veterans and their families in obtaining and maintaining stable housing. Supportive services will be available, in-cluding life skills training, support groups, financial and transportation assis-tance. Peer mentors who are veterans will add to the individualized, strength-based approach to individual growth. Residents of our transitional facilities are required to have some form of vocational training.

Heroes Village will make readjustment for veterans easier as they navigate from active duty to civilian life. Heroes Village makes owning home in a community of fellow veterans dignified, simple and affordable.

Heroes Village will hire veterans to build our communities and we will build these dignified homes with American-made materials and equipment.

Heroes Village will provide transitional housing and vocational training for 120 Veterans at a former nursing home in the Greater Hartford, CT area, just one mile from the State’s largest VA facility. Renovations have begun and the facility will open in March 2012. This facility will serve a critical need for our Veterans rehabilitation and re-integration into the Connecticut community.

Construction of the first Heroes Village condominium will begin in March 2012 on a 40-unit condominium complex in Meriden, CT.

We will be breaking ground in April 2012 in East Haven, CT on affordable condominiums. Located at 150 Foxon Road, 24 two-bedroom, two-bath condominium units will be constructed.

According to the VA, the number of women veterans in the next 15 years is expected to double, while the number of male veterans is expected to de-crease. Unfortunately, some of these women veterans will end up without a home or stable living environment.

In Norwalk, Heroes Village is currently renovating the former VFW Post, 48 High Street, to house at least 30 women veterans who are currently homeless.

All Heroes Village facilities will be located near a VA facility and/or mili-tary base so that veterans can receive the medical care or counseling they need.

A Heroes Village home will typically be a two or three bedroom eco-friendly residence. All Heroes Village homes will be designed with the spe-cific needs of veterans in mind and will be priced lower than homes of comparable quality.

All Heroes Village facilities will be compliant with the Americans with Dis-abilities Act.

Upcoming Connecticut projects include Bridgeport, Rocky Hill, Waterbury, Branford, North Haven, Norwich and Hamden.
