Volunteers of America of Florida and The Home Depot Foundation to provide transitional housing for veterans

Press release from Volunteers of America of Florida and The Home Depot Foundation

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Volunteers of America of Florida (VOAFL) is pleased to announce the purchase of a new property to provide transitional housing for unhoused veterans.

On Thursday, October 19, 2023, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., we are delighted to partner with The Home Depot Foundation and Team Depot, Home Depot’s associate volunteer force, to refurbish the newly acquired property at 3901 NW 7th Street.

Our collaborative efforts with Team Depot will focus on cleaning, painting, and organizing each room to create an inviting space for incoming veterans. This initiative prepares the rooms for the first round of veterans moving in and transitioning out of homelessness.

We express our gratitude to The Home Depot Foundation for their generous funding and commitment to this project, helping us provide comfortable living quarters for veterans needing support.

At VOAFL, we believe that every veteran deserves a safe, secure home, and continue to work tirelessly toward this initiative. The impact of this project will increase our ability to serve those who have bravely served our country.

For more information about this project or to learn how you can support our initiatives, please visit our website or contact our media representatives.

The Home Depot Foundation has been partnering with Volunteers of America (VOA) since 2011 to provide housing solutions for military veterans and their families across the U.S. Giving back to veterans is personal to The Home Depot as more than 35,000 of the company’s associates are veterans or military spouses. Since 2011, The Home Depot Foundation has invested $475 million in veteran causes. Over the past 10 years, The Home Depot Foundation has helped renovate and enhance more than 55,000 veteran homes and facilities, ensuring more of our nation’s heroes have a safe, comfortable place to call home that fits their individual needs. As a company that values service, The Home Depot is honored to help support community members who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. 

  • What a great project! Had no idea Home Depot supported this. We owe our freedom to our Vets.
