Columbia, MO – April 23, 2014

Welcome Home, Inc., the Columbia Housing Authority, and the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital have formed a partnership to create a campus for Veterans in Columbia to provide housing and supportive services to U.S. Military Veterans.

The three partner agencies are proposing to create a campus for Veterans that will include twenty-five (25) one-bedroom apartments for Veterans participating in the Housing and Urban Development- Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program.

The building containing the twenty-five (25) one-bedroom apartments will also contain a fitness room, computer lab, and laundry facilities. An adjoining space will contain office and programming space. Energy efficient construction, appliances, and HVAC will be utilized to create an energy efficient building. Utility services will be provided.

The campus will contain a new Supportive Services Center that will house supportive services staff from Welcome Home and the VA Hospital and include programming space, a commercial kitchen, dining room, lounge area, computer lab, laundry facilities, and a patio.
