Springfield, MO – The Kitchen, Inc.’s Home at Last program is still housing Veterans! In the months of March and April, Home at Last has housed 26 people, 35% under the age of 18. As a community, we understand and appreciate the importance of helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19, while providing a home.
“During this COVID-19 crisis, Home at Last has been working hard to help Veterans who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless” said case manager Patrick Haenni. “Our goal is to help Veterans in an at-risk situation to maintain stable housing. We assist Veterans off the street and place them in a temporary motel. From there, the Veterans are placed into a more permanent residence.”
Required eligibility is determined by an assessment with The Kitchen, Inc’s Home at Last team. If a client has received assistance within the last two years, they may still be able to receive services due to COVID-19. The Veteran must have an income below 50% of the average median income to qualify (AMI).
The Kitchen, Inc. brings stability and purpose to people who are homeless by displaying respect, dignity, quality, service, and compassion. Keep up with The Kitchen, Inc. by following us on social media including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
