Furniture Project

11

Thanks to a $75,000 donation of bed frames, box springs, mattresses, refrigerators, microwaves, chests-of-drawers, chairs, tables and computers from Fort McNair to the National Capitol Veterans Coalition that donated the items to the Office of Veterans Affairs. The District will be able to assist homeless veterans and family members moving into transitional or permanent housing. The National Capitol Veterans Coalition will administer the program with oversight and assistance from the Office of Veterans Affairs. This program will allow our veterans to concentrate on receiving health care, supportive services, education and job placement without having to worry about acquiring furniture for the housing units into which they are moving. Veterans are required to complete a request for furniture form that may be obtained from the Office of Veterans Affairs and provide proof of housing from the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ HUD-VASH program or from the DCHA.
