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 construction training to unemployed, at-risk and vulnerable veterans to refurbish and restore homes 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:   Job skill development training 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.
