We spent a couple of hours today at the Veterans Restoration Quarters (another ministry of ABCCM). It is an old Super 8 Hotel that has been converted into a place where United States Veteran men can find hope and empowerment to leave behind homelessness and addictions.
VRQ not only offers meals and a place to sleep for up to two years - they provide case management, counseling, mentoring, a weight room, and job skill education including: gardening, culinary arts, and a truck driving school where men can earn their CDL's.
There are approximately 240 beds in the facility - but there is almost always a waiting list.
We were impressed by VRQ's structured program and their mission to help men with the restoration of every part of their lives, from money management to family relationships.
The VRQ accepts monetary and material donations (they have a current need for personal hygiene items). Volunteers (individuals & groups) also come from all over the East Coast to do service projects.
