Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia (Habitat-NCG), along with the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program and John Creek Veterans Association (JCVA), are kicking off their 2023 Veteran Home Repair program for Cherokee, North Fulton, Dawson, Forsyth Counties.
This collaboration between organizations has assisted Veteran homeowners with needed home repairs, HVAC replacements, roofs, mobility ramps and other modifications to local Veteran homeowners for several years. The projects are often funded using various grant funds and private donations such as Community Block Development grants, Home Depot Foundation, Atlanta Regional Commission and Veteran Home Repair and Modification grants for qualified Veteran homeowners.
Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program, which is currently a subunit of the Canton American Legion Post 45, typically focuses on ramps and minor repairs while Habitat-NCG provides a more holistic approach that includes HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, Roofing, and more intensive bathroom modifications and ramps. When the work is complete, no matter the scope, each Veteran homeowner is able to continue to live in safety and security, regain dignity, and age in place.
Veterans who are interested in applying for the program, plugging in as a volunteer, or working to advocate for Veterans locally, may contact Jim Lindenmayer at firstname.lastname@example.org with CCHVP or Keith Bogle at email@example.com with JCVA & Habitat-NCG. Corporate sponsors should reach out to Sabrina Kirkland with Habitat-NCG at firstname.lastname@example.org.
