Statistics released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) indicates that nearly 40,000 veterans remain homeless, with approximately 2,000 in New Jersey. The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans estimates that homeless veterans represent 11% of all homeless people in the United States.
Sarah’s Heart Incorporated is a nonprofit organization on a mission to provide direct, practical, and compassionate housing to homeless veterans. The nonprofit has acquired a 2-acre plot in the city of Bridgeton with permissions and township approvals supporting the construction and development of a residential community. These approvals are supported by engineering specifications and drawings for an 18-dwelling community.
The New Jersey veterans aid nonprofit has proposed the development of the property that is expected to be the center of a thriving community of United States veterans. The community is expected to provide housing for men and women who have served in the armed forces and lead to the improvement of transportation facilities, and other auxiliaries that provide VA services.
The site of the proposed development is in the vicinity of a Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) organization and a VA clinic. The charity nonprofit expects to begin housing veterans in a year’s time.
According to a spokesperson for Sarah’s Heart Incorporated, “The development of this new housing community seeks to meet the pressing need to provide housing for our valued veterans. We believe that the support of the community through this fundraiser can help us give these courageous men and women the chance to enjoy a home.”
Sarah’s Heart Incorporated estimates the cost of development of the Veterans housing project to be $7 million. All donations made to the nonprofit are tax deductible. The center accepts donations in cash, stocks, bonds, gift cards, life insurance, jewelry, art, antiques, cellphones, and from inheritance instruments.
Founded in 1997 by the late Sarah Tatum, Sarah’s Heart Incorporated is a 501c(3) organization desiring to provide housing, programs and services for veterans in need. Sarah believed that no veteran should be without adequate housing and services due to their sacrifice to our country. More information is available at the URL above.
