VETERANS HELPING VETERANS HEAL
Veterans Helping Veterans Heal Website
2008 – 2012
Steele Group Architects was asked to renovate a 2-story, 8,400 SF existing building to create Veterans Helping Veterans Heal, a transitional housing facility that provides housing and rehabilitation services to veterans. The renovation consisted of the demolition of existing interior partitions, ceilings and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and designing a new facility.
The newly designed facility includes a classroom and dining space, offices and administration spaces, a living room and other basic residential services. Sleeping quarters are provided in 30 beds arranged in both private and dorm-style rooms. We worked closely with consultants to provide a building that is both energy and cost conscious and that helps to minimize operating expenses for our client.
Owned and managed by the North Carolina Housing Services & Management Corp., a nonprofit affiliate of the North Carolina Housing Foundation, Veterans Helping Veterans Heal is part of Winston-Salem’s long-term plan to end chronic homelessness. The primary funding sources were a grant from the Veterans Administration and funds provided by the United Way.
