Community

Join me in helping me help them...

As the owner of Archadeck of Columbus, my passion is for much more than just providing the community with a trusted source to turn to for designing and building outdoor living spaces. It’s important to me to be a proactive member of the community and our great nation and to work hands-on to make a difference, and I strive to give back at every chance.

With this in mind, I want to help spread the word about a cause that is close to my heart — The VALOR Clinic Foundation and how they are helping homeless veterans.

On any given evening here in the US, over 35,000 veterans are homeless. These brave individuals who gave all to keep peace on the homefront do not one to call their own.

Did you know…

According to The National Alliance To End Homelessness, as of January 2019, 37,085 veterans were experiencing homelessness and of that total 22,740 veterans were sheltered, while 14,345 veterans were unsheltered.

Why is this happening?

Veterans are not unlike civilians when it comes to homelessness. They must navigate the lack of affordable housing and economic hardship that everyone faces in addition to the challenges brought on by multiple and extended deployments. Taken together, these factors create a population that deserves–but can often struggle with–housing stability.

Research indicates that those who served in the late Vietnam and post-Vietnam eras are at the greatest risk of becoming homeless but that veterans from more recent wars and conflicts are also affected. Veterans returning from deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq often face invisible wounds of war, including traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, both of which correlate with homelessness.
