Capital Campaigns

Family & Community Services and its programs are currently undertaking a number of growth and expansion projects. The goal of all of these projects is to increase the capacity and quality of the services we offer. You can learn more about our ongoing capital campaigns and how to get involved below.

Freedom House

Each year, Freedom House serves around 50 homeless veterans, all of whom have been males. However, female veterans are the fastest growing homeless population, making up 8% of homeless veterans today. And they are dealing with unique challenges like military sexual trauma or having children in the household.

With our renovations, we can accommodate males and females, including LGBTQ veterans and veterans with children, giving them private space to live during their stay with us, and also providing safer spaces for social distancing and reducing the spread of COVID-19.

King Kennedy community Center

The recent addition to King Kennedy Community Center provides the opportunity to expand services and increase the amount of children served. With Phase II, the facility will be complete with bathrooms, air conditioning, storage, and other necessities to provide evidence based programming, offer recreational and enriching activities, and use the facility for community events and gatherings. It is our hope that youth in the community have a place to turn to, whether they or their families are struggling with mental health or substance use issues, or they just need additional support and a safe outlet after-school and on weekends. It is a dream for this community that has been fifty years in the making – a dream that has finally come true.

The Harry Donovan Jr. Valor Home

Each year, Valor Home serves around 100 homeless veterans, all of whom have been males. However, female veterans are the fastest growing homeless population, making up 8% of homeless veterans today. And they are dealing with unique challenges like military sexual trauma or having children in the household.

With our renovations, we can accommodate males and females, including LGBTQ veterans, giving them private space to live during their stay with us, and also providing safer spaces for social distancing and reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Valley Counseling Services

Each year, Valley Counseling Services’ Children’s Office serves over 1,500 youth. Nearly 90% of these youth and their families are eligible for Medicaid. Many face challenges within and outside of the home and need the additional support to grow and thrive.

With our renovations, our aging facility will be transformed into an environment that is safe and supportive of the needs of youth.

Veteran's Haven
