Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening for San Marcos' Very First House for Homeless Veterans
Fan of the Feather, Inc. have just announced that the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for their first transitional center will be on February 17, 2012 at 5:00pm at 3562 Grand Ave., San Marcos, CA.
- San Diego, CA (1888PressRelease) January 26, 2012 - This new home will be the organization's very first transitional center for homeless veterans. They closed escrow in December 2012 and the new home will house seven female veterans. "We are so excited to be the first to provide transitional housing for homeless women veterans in San Marcos. Through the grace of God, we have been blessed with so many that have worked to support our endeavors and have had a continued faith in our vision" said Dr. Larry Wood, President and Co-Founder of Fan of the Feather, Inc.
While their initial goal is to help homeless veterans get off the streets and into secure, safe, clean housing that offers a supportive environment free of drugs and alcohol, Fan of the Feather's programs are designed to help these same men and women (and sometimes even families) to return to independent living. Along with emergency and transitional housing, they teach life management skills, provide financial and family counseling and career development for the homeless.
