MHI VETERANS HOUSE

The Veterans House project will provide 40 affordable and supportive studio units for veterans. A minimum of 15% of the units will be wheelchair accessible. Indoor communal and amenity spaces will be located on the ground floor of the building. Outdoor amenity features include a calming water feature, a patio area for gatherings, sitting areas and a garden. The building is intended to be designed to meet the Passive House Standard for energy efficiency. The money saved through energy efficiencies can allow for additional reinvestment into programs for the clients served. Recognizing that there is a need for housing for veterans across the country, once the first project has been completed and the model has been tested, MHI is committed to seeing this Housing First model replicated across the country in areas with proven need.
