The mission of the Garry Owen House is to provide a transitional shelter where homeless veterans can find hope for the future through a fellowship with other veterans dedicated to help them link up with the opportunities they have earned in the service to our country in an atmosphere of safety, dignity and respect.
The Garry Owen House is a 501 C3 non-profit organization.
The goal of this project is to provide temporary housing for homeless veterans in a safe, comfortable, supportive environment that facilitates transition from a life of insecurity, dependency and social isolation. This has been accomplished through the establishment of a facility that fosters a combination of privacy and social interaction with fellow veterans and the community.
The facility is located in a small, rural community, which is key to providing a peaceful, non-threatening and non-stressful place that facilitates re-adaptation to the realities of life. The environment is conducive to participating in recreational and vocational activities such as gardening and small scale agricultural projects. The facility accommodates outside support services that can be provided to each veteran privately or in groups.
