Homes For Heroes Foundation - A Time for Thanksgiving Featured

Learn about the Homes For Heroes Foundation Learn about the Homes For Heroes Foundation

 home for heroes foundation Our first Veterans’ Village opened about this time last year – and three of our resident veterans have already “graduated” from our program: employed fulltime, stable and self-sufficient.

We anticipate opening our second Village in Edmonton next summer. Over the past three years we have been blessed with the support of numerous individuals, corporations, service clubs and government agencies. At this time of year, it only seems appropriate that we take a moment and offer our thanks to those who have supported, inspired and encouraged us.

This edition of Open House is dedicated to all of you. 
We, and our veterans, cannot thank you enough! BZ!

Province of Alberta announces $1.1 million in support for Edmonton Veterans’ Village


On October 2, 2020 our Premier, Jason Kenny, accompanied by MLA for Leduc-Beaumont, Brad Rutherford, who is also military liaison for the Alberta government, attended at 908 ATCO Village in Calgary to make a major $1.1 million funding announcement in support of our ATCO Evansdale Veterans’ Village in Edmonton.

“Alberta’s government is proud to support at risk veterans in the Edmonton area by providing funding for the Homes For Heroes transitional housing project.  It’s a great example of what can be accomplished when different orders of government and the non-profit and corporate sectors work together.”
 
“We know that some who face combat, or violence and trauma in far-off places, come back and find it difficult to re-adjust to civilian life.”
 
 “If our veterans are struggling, we need to be there for them.”
Jason Kenny, Premier

Our President, Dave Howard, explained that there are as many as 5,000 veterans experiencing homelessness across Canada, which is why Homes for Heroes began its work three years ago. Chair of the Homes for Heroes Board of Directors, Gerald Jackman indicated that we are already witnessing the successful transition of veterans back into civilian life because they had a home and wrap-around support services, stating that “Tiny home villages are more than just a housing-first solution.”

This announcement comes on the heels of the approval, by Edmonton City Council, of the re-zoning of the land where our Edmonton Village will be located – a significant milestone in moving the project ahead.  After taking into account the value of the land lease, together with servicing costs and development fees waived by the Municipal Government, the City of Edmonton’s contribution to the Village is valued at over $1.2 million.

Our thanks to all Albertans, and in particular the citizens of Edmonton, for supporting our veterans in need! BZ!
