A SENSE OF COMMUNITY.

A PLACE TO CALL HOME.

The Wisconsin Veterans Village Association seeks to create a first-of-its-kind

VETERANS VILLAGE that provides housing, support, and community to veterans throughout their lifespan, as they live among fellow veterans in a veteran-centric culture.


That’s why we’re launching our $15 million Serving those who Served campaign to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
 

WHAT WE’RE BUILDING:
Located at the Outagamie County Housing Authority Glenpark Campus in Appleton, veterans will have easy access to the John H. Bradley Veterans Clinic, Fox Valley Technical College, Fox Valley Veterans Council, and Tri-County Dental -- all within walking-distance!

 

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, THE WVVA WILL:

  • Renovate 48 existing apartments for single veterans and veteran families  

  • Construct new, fully accessible senior living apartments for aging veterans

  • Provide end-of-life care at our 10-bed Honor Home

  • Coordinate career and program services at our community center

  • Employ a full-time “Navigator” who will help connect veterans and their families to existing veteran and community services 

  • Create a meaningful, sustainable, and multi-generational return on investment

“As a community and country who have benefited from veterans’ sacrifices, we owe it to them to provide comprehensive support for their best life. I feel a strong responsibility to give them the tools and resources they need to help them maintain their role as a vital contributor to the community and to their families.”

Bob Keller, Chairman of the Board, JJ Keller & Associates and Army Reserve Veteran, Donor

WHY VETERAN HOUSING:

SERVING THOSE WHO SACRIFICED

Between the tearful goodbye and the triumphant return, soldiers and their families make tremendous sacrifices. Parents, spouses, children, and loved ones feel the stress and loneliness of separation. Those is service work long and challenging hours, face life-threatening situations, and are deployed to combat zones for months at a time. When they return to civilian life, many veterans continue to face challenges:

  • Reconnecting with family and re-establishing a role in the family

  • Preparing to enter, or re-enter, the workforce

  • Joining or creating a community

  • Adjusting to providing basic necessities, such as food, clothing, and housing

  • Suffering and managing from physical or emotional wounds

  • Finding resources for community or veterans’ benefits

The Veterans Village will:

  • Provide stable, affordable housing for area single veterans and veteran families to promote self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness

  • Improve quality of life with a continuum of care that is veteran-centric

  • Support for physical and emotional needs

  • Provide respectful end-of-life care for an aging veteran population

  • Create a multi-generational community of support and understanding

  • Honor, dignify, and respect the men, women and families who sacrificed to serve our country
