Does anyone have a good starting point (recources, info) for starting a veteran group home or transistion facility?

My passion is to move back to my home town in Fayette Co. PA and start a Veteran Group/Transition Home. I feel the need to still serve and I want to do it helping my fellow veterans from my home town. If there is anyone that happens to read this and is will to pass on any info in the process of getting started in doing this it would be greatly appreciated.

Good Morning Brandon, Here is a reference - Tom Hammons in San Diego. He started the San Diego Navy Network and has grown it to well over 6K members. His contact information is tjhammons@aol.com. Use my name and he should be able to help. Connect with me on LinkedIn. Gary Rossi

Hello Jennifer,

It definitely would be a transition home, I want to have in-house assistance (one stop shop) with various obstacles. Thank you so much for the response and information, I will take a look...thanks again!

Hello Brandon,
Thank you for the question. Would this be a group meet-up to help transitioning veterans acclimate in the civilian world or a transition home for veterans to live in? If it is the latter, I found a great resource from The Coalition for Homeless Veterans, http://nchv.org/index.php/service/service/start_a_homeless_vet_program/. This is a great step by step guide on starting a veteran's housing program. Hopefully, you find this helpful.
