Veterans Recovery Resources purchased two buildings located on a three-acre parcel in the medical corridor on Springhill Avenue in Mobile, Alabama. These buildings will serve as the permanent campus for the non-profit’s unique recovery program for military Veterans and their families suffering from substance abuse, post-traumatic stress and other mental health issues.
Using a grant from The Community Foundation of South Alabama’s Veterans Initiative and other funding sources, the initial focus is on remodeling 1156 Springhill Avenue to provide intensive outpatient counseling and a range of therapeutic services for Veterans as soon as possible. 1200 Springhill Avenue will house the non-profit’s residential care program. As the campus is built, the properties will align under one address.
The vision of Veterans Recovery Resources is to create a vibrant community of healthy Veterans and their families who support each other over a lifetime, strengthening the local community and contributing to the city’s economic development. By purchasing these blighted buildings in need of complete repair, the organization is doing its part to contribute to the revitalization of the city. In addition, the acquisition will create new professional jobs and training opportunities for students across many health disciplines including psychology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, social work and more. Most importantly, Veterans Recovery Resources will fill the major gap in residential treatment programs for Veterans offered on the Gulf Coast.
Naming opportunities are available for donors wishing to make a positive and lasting impact on the city. Organizations interested in supporting Veterans Recovery Resources in this effort including providing in-kind support or services should contact the non-profit at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veterans Recovery Resources is working closely with all other Veteran resources in the area, including the new Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic that is under construction. Our residential care program will serve as a strong complement to the Veterans Affairs outpatient services. The volume of Veterans is too great for any one organization to serve alone. By contributing to an eco-system of service providers and collaborating with all public and private Veteran organizations, we will bring innovation to solving problems and achieve our goal of creating a vibrant community of healthy Veterans who work together, contribute to the local market and support each other over a lifetime.
