From UrbanMilwaukee:

The National Center for Housing Management (NCHM), a national non-profit organization, has announced a $100,000 grant in support of the Save the Soldiers Home project on the grounds of the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center overlooking Miller Park. When completed, the project will restore six historic buildings, some dating back to the 1860s, and create 101 supportive housing units for veterans and their families who are either homeless or at risk of being homeless.

The donation was announced by NCHM Chair Wendy Burke at its first-ever Veterans for Housing Initiative (VHI) Summit held in Washington, D.C. last week. The VHI is an effort to attract, train and welcome veterans of the U.S. military to careers in the housing industry.

“With our mission to professionalize the housing industry, we are extremely aware that many veterans lack quality, affordable housing themselves,” said Ms. Burke. “The Save the Soldiers Home campaign is the perfect fit for us to demonstrate our commitment to this important cause.”

The Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee and the Alexander Company of Madison are leading the project. In addition, The Alexander Company is serving as the project developer and architect.
