Giving a second chance to veterans and families escaping domestic violence
Responsive to Our Community is a 501(c)3 charity that works collaboratively with the community and government to identify blighted and vacant multi-family homes and then provides on-the-job maintenance and repair training to at-risk veterans to refurbish and restore the buildings in rustbelt cities. We are currently operating in Syracuse, NY and Oneida, NY and look forward to expanding to a city near you soon.
Responsive to Our Community then provides the newly refurbished apartments to homeless indigent families who have been victims of domestic violence.
Mission One: Provide a three-month job skill development training in maintenance skills for vulnerable veterans;
Mission Two: Stabilize and rehabilitate neighborhoods by refurbishing dilapidated homes;
Mission Three: Provide sustainable, safe, and affordable housing to homeless families who have faced domestic violence.
Best of all, the generated rental income from the affordable housing units make each home perpetually self-sustaining; no additional fundraising is necessary to keep the apartments operational.
Responsive to Our Community is Guidestar Platinum, which means that it maintains the highest level of transparency regarding its operations and financial information.
