To Friends ,


We are writing to tell you about New Hope Village 4 Veterans, a program that will provide a home and critical social services for homeless Veterans and their families. According to U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates, as of January 25, 2012 there were 62,619 homeless Veterans in America. While this number is large, it does not even include their families. These selfless Americas served in World War II, the Korean War, Cold War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Lebanon, Persian Gulf War, Afghanistan, Iraq and South America to protect our country enabling you and I to live free.. Despite their willingness to give their lives, many homeless Veterans are homeless due to poverty, lack of support from family or friends, substance use, or mental health challenges that may developed or worsened as a result of trauma they experience while serving. New Hope Village 4 Veterans will be committed to meeting the needs of homeless Veteran by providing a comprehensive, individualized system of care.

 

At New Hope Village 4 Veterans, we will take care of the whole family including the Veteran. Our program will offer housing, education, and support services. The New Hope Village 4 Veterans facility will provide housing for individual Veterans and Veteran families for 2 to 3 years or until it is mutually agreed upon through case management, that the individual or family is prepare to maintain their self-sufficiency. Program participants are expected to successfully complete all in-house training and development programs before graduation.

 

The New Hope Village 4 Veterans project is based on the vision of its Founder, Cheryl (Kit) Turner, and has been in the work for almost ten years. It will cost an estimated $20 million and be built from the ground up in Clifton, NJ. There is a great need for this building due to the fact that there is only one other place that allows children to live with their parents while they get their lives back together. Fundraising efforts to complete the project have already been started, but it will cost $5 to $7 million in order for this one of the kind, state of the art building to get started. If we can find a big empty building such as and old hospital, school or hotel it would also work out because we can rehab it and make it fit.

 

The New Hope Village 4 Veterans facility will provide our Veterans with much more than just a “bed for the night” or an apartment. It will have 30 - 2 bedroom apartments an on-site green house a water fountain in the front lobby, our families will be provided with an atmosphere that gives a nurturing and supportive background to their efforts to learn the skills needed to live independently within the community. The New Hope Village 4 Veterans complex will be solar powered with a build-in wireless network, will also feature:

 

  • Classrooms for educational services.
  • A library.
  • An industrial kitchen.
  • A formal dining hall to eat in and/or hold special functions and parties.
  • A full-sized gym and locker rooms that will be available for Veterans with limited access to housing and home-care – This will allow them to come in to take a hot showers, get a good meal to eat, machines to wash their clothes, and maybe even find new ones from the clothing donation bin.
  • A small clinic, which provides case management services and assists residents with keeping personal appointments at the VA
  • A small, remote Veterans center
  • An idea of the staff on-site will be headhunters, licensed hair stylists & barbers, and furniture donations for the residents.

Children residing at NHV4Vcan be home-schooled by certified teachers, who will prepare them for continued education. The goal of providing home schooling is to encourage students to learn with dignity, self-worth, and high expectations. The focus will be on developing the confidence and determination to succeed academically and excel to the head of the class. Our goal is that when they leave NHV4V the students will continue earning honors, while continuing to be a ray of light within their family. By building on the important legacy of their parent’s Military backgrounds, they can look forward to brighter futures.
