Allegan Homeless Solutions provides HOMES for the homeless. In just four years as a legally recognized non-profit, we have purchased three homes (four units). To date, there have been more than 5,300 nights with heads on pillows in our properties. Of those we have walked alongside as they exited homelessness by living in one of our properties, 14% have been individuals, 28% were Veterans, and 57% were families. We have served hundreds with hotel nights, campsites, homeless-friendly food, gas cards, loving supportive services, personal coaching, and funds to maintain housing.
Today, we have an opportunity to purchase a 7 bedroom, 5 bath home in a small, quaint community in Michigan. We would like to provide a residence that focuses on the unique needs of our homeless Veterans, families who have lost their homes, and vulnerable individuals. This beautiful home may be a short-term stay or their permanent home - we will leave that up to them.
The GoFundMe campaign will support our work with the homeless, and if we receive enough support and the house is still available, to purchase another home for our homeless friends.
There is a sense of urgency with our ask for support. There are too many homeless Veterans, too many children, and too many disabled people struggling with homelessness. Any support you can provide is appreciated. No gift is too small.
