Cowlitz Americorps Network Helps Local Veterans on Armed Forces Day
Cowlitz Americorps Network (CAN) will be working with the Longview Housing Authority (LHA) to refurbish and beautify the Stratford Apartments. The Cowlitz Americorps Network is part of The Corporation for National & Community Service that focuses on community needs which serve children and families by giving one-on-one guidance and assistance in order to make a difference in their lives. Part of The AmeriCorps Pledge states “I will get things done for America-to make our people safer, smarter, and healthier.”
Armed Forces Day was created in 1949 under President Harry Truman when the “military was unified under one government department.” It serves many purposes including being a day to honor and acknowledge Americans in the armed forces. The CAN has chosen this day as one of their service projects to help those in need in our community.
LHA has made a commitment to honor veterans by implementing the Veteran’s Integration Program (VIP) for homeless veterans. The program helps veterans by providing housing, case management and employment.
CAN, partnering with LHA are refurbishing and beautifying The Stratford Apartments in readiness for future veteran tenants. The goal is to provide safe housing for veterans.
