This month, we’re joined by Anthony Love, Principal Advisor to the Executive Director for Intra/Inter-Agency Collaboration and Director of Community Engagement; Dr. Carmela Daniels, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program Specialist; and Dr. Matthew Stimmel, National Training Director for the Veteran Justice Programs to learn more about racial equity in homeless programs.

Our guests talked about what equity is, what some of the unique challenges that minority Veterans face, and why it’s both critical (and okay) to center equity when providing housing and supportive services.

Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness are strongly encouraged to contact the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at (877) 4AID-VET (877-424-3838) for assistance.

We are a new organization founded to specifically support the needs of vulnerable populations (veterans are our priority) who are experiencing or at risk of being unhoused and without many of the basic needs. We are modeled after the Veteran's Health Administration's Medical Foster Home Program (with many additional resources). We offer two very unique services: #1. We offer transitional housing as on-site live in training to those who wish to continue to “serve” by becoming caregivers/facility managers. Once training is completed, they transition to their own facility (Ripple) and establish a new shared housing facility (MFH approved). #2. Our facilities (Ripples) are an all-inclusive housing option (alternative to enter a nursing home facility) at a decreased rate (negotiable) to those in need of a safe & secure “family” oriented environment, allowing veterans to “Age In Place”. We currently have vacancies in select locations available for both caregivers and residents, and we would love to offer our assistance to those in need.

Absolutely everything I have to my name is now soaked completely. Like all other nare-do-well orginizations, it seems the number of homeless folks some adds to the said groups bottom line. (in other words we homeless make the pseudo helpers lots of money) From the garbage of rapid rehousing to the 9 years of waiting for hud-vash, it is all a joke. Thanks for trying to make us have some sort of hope. I have to figure out how to get dry and warm.
