Providing a stable, living environment for homeless veterans that provides them with a foundation of recovery that equips them to interact in a community setting and attain goals of employment or continuing education.
My name is Tonya Nelson-Walker, founder and Executive Director of the newly formed non-profit organization called, William Lee & Patrick Maurice Independent Living LLC. We are a newly formed non-profit organization. Our organization is designed to provide housing for our homeless veterans and families throughout the Hampton Roads area. It will be in a multi-family/apartment setting that is fully furnished, and space will be shared.
Our organization will offer living skills training, employment readiness, transportation, hot meals, cleaning, and hygiene supplies that will assist in giving them the ability to rise above the devastation that they are currently facing and achieve the success of self-sustainability.
Our organizations' goal for our clients is to provide an environment that will make them feel comfortable, safe, and secure, giving them a sense of community, privacy, and support.
In these uncertain times, people experiencing homelessness are at a greater risk for infections especially COVID19; and we will do our due diligence to ensure that our clients and their living areas are free from COVID and other viruses by making appointments for testing/vaccinations, cleaning, practicing social distancing, as well as adhering to COVID19 protocols such as placing sanitizing dispensers throughout the living areas, disinfecting, masking up, and washing our hands.
In closing, the absence of support, as well as the lack of low-cost housing, have left several on the streets, causing a high in the number of veterans without access to proper accommodation. We're here to fill that void for those who risk their lives for our liberties. Please help us in supporting our homeless veterans/families.
