Golden Isles Veterans Village Initiative

Golden Isles Veterans Village Initiative has cleared land in downtown Brunswick next to the Manna House and will soon begin construction of 30 Tiny Houses exclusively for homeless veterans. In addition to providing a fully furnished house (128 to 144 sq ft) there will be counseling, physical and mental support and job training to help them transition back into society. This is a transitional program, a hand up not a hand out. This is a private undertaking with no government money so donations are needed to make this a reality. Contact James Vivenzio, 912-222-1063 to make a donation and get more information.
