BHC invites you to donate now to our #Giving Tuesday for BHC Veterans Campaign. All donations will be used to create a common outdoor space for the Burbank Bungalows, an 11-unit property that provides permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless veterans. Since 2012, non-profit organizations have participated in #GivingTuesday, a one-day worldwide fundraising event. This year, #GivingTuesday will be on November 29, 2016 but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then to donate. Shortly after the mass consumerism of Black Friday & Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for all of us to remember the goodwill and generosity of the holidays.
BHC’s newly completed project, The Burbank Bungalows, is a service-enriched community that provides permanent housing for 11 formerly homeless veterans. Last year, BHC & our generous donors furnished and equipped 11 units for homeless veterans through our Adopt-A-Vet’s Home Campaign. After years of living in cars and the street, 11 formerly homeless veterans have now been living in their new homes for months.
Shortly after the grand opening of the Burbank Bungalows, all of our veteran residents began requesting an outdoor sitting area where they could meet and continue to grow their neighborly relationships. Because there is no common space for our veteran housing, many of our residents sit out on their front steps to socialize with one another. After facing so much adversity, BHC Veterans deserve a supportive environment that they are proud to call their home. A common outdoor space would provide an open meeting area and allow them to build a strong sense of community.
