The Hunger and Homeless Coalition of Collier Community Foundation estimates that there are 90+ homeless Veterans in Collier County in January 2021. In the most recent count in January 2022, the estimate has been reduced to 47.
The Bravo House, which opened in April 2021, is a 3-bedroom home located in Naples and provides long-term, supportive housing to senior, single, unmarried veterans who meet eligibility. Rent is capped at 30% of the Veteran’s gross income. The average resident age at the Bravo house is in the mid 60’s to mid-70’s age range. This home was purchased with a major donation from the Collier Community Foundation.
The Charlie House, which opened in April 2022, is also located in Naples and will provide long-term, affordable housing to senior single, unmarried veterans who meet eligibility requirements. The Charlie House was made possible by an anonymous donor for additional housing over the next 5 years for three more senior Veterans.
WHC wants to ensure that there is always a permanent home in Collier County for Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Please help us achieve our goal of No Veteran In Need Is left behind.
Providing a hand up and not a handout to our local Veterans is our patriotic duty!
