Operation Reveille is underway and the call-to-action is for support from the apartment industry.
Hillsborough County is seeking fifty apartment homes for homeless veterans by November 11, Veterans Day. Thirty apartments were committed as of October 21. I hope BAAA members like you will help the County meet its goal and provide shelter for these "wounded warriors".
Operation Reveille seeks one-bedroom units in Hillsborough County. ACTS, the Agency for Community Treatment Services, has "bridge money" to pay deposits and VASH vouchers for the rent for twelve months ... and hopefully longer. ACTS will guarantee the rent and lease the units and then sub-lease to the veteran.
ACTS will provide supportive services to the resident for the term of the lease to enable the veteran to successfully maintain housing. Program staff will also be on-call 24/7 for you to assist with any emergent needs.
ACTS is prepared with other protections for the apartment property to assure you of no disruption in lease payments. The unit will need to be inspected prior to occupancy.
If you have questions or wish to help, please contact Jana Balicki at ACTS: 813-246-4899 x223 or email@example.com.
Thank you for your support of this important community initiative.
