Target demographics: Veterans 62-years of age or older who are homeless or have no families or caretakers. The Veterans will need to be able to live independently, as we will not be equipped to handle medical needs other than basic care. We will provide transportation to appointments and will assist the Veterans in receiving benefits they are entitled to.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help to prepare first housing unit to be occupied; hang drywall; plumbing or electrical work; etc.

Geographic areas served: State of Kentucky

Mission:
The organizational purpose of the Pfc. Richard L. Vanover Veterans Village, Inc. is to provide single senior veterans, 62 years old and older, that have no family or caretakers, an alternative to assisted living centers at an income based fee. The Village is committed to providing senior veterans with a dignified place to call home in a family atmosphere.
Results:
The Village is in its second year. We have been working to spread the word about our organization and fundraising. We have our first housing unit/cabin on the property and as soon as we are able to finish up the drywall, electric and plumbing, it will be ready for our first two residents. We are planning another fundraiser for May 10-11, 2013 and hope that our efforts from this past year will bring about a large crowd. We are in desperate need of a farm tractor and, hopefully, we will receive enough funds either from the upcoming fundraiser or from private donations to help us procure such a tractor. We are not planning to take any government funding and all donations are tax deductible as we are a viable 501(c)(3) organization.
