ARVL provides accommodation to veterans when they need it the most. Homeless veterans or those at risk of homelessness can access suitable accommodation to help them get back on their feet.
Our ARVL unit furnishings are well utilised and at times need replacing. Donations allow us to replace items that are either well-worn or moved along with the ARVL resident to assist them in setting up their own place to call ‘home’:
- $300 can assist a homeless veteran move into longer term housing with furniture such as a bed or sofa.
- $100 can provide bedding and manchester
- $75 can provide helpful small electronic goods such as a microwave, kettle and toaster.
- $50 can provide essential everyday items like cutlery or crockery.
- $25 can provide welcome food packs and non-perishable food staples
When an ARVL resident is on their way to being ‘back on track’, we will often assist them to find longer term accommodation and allow them to take much needed furniture and goods with them to reduce the financial stress and burden encountered when moving into an unfurnished ‘home’.
