Santa Rosa Fire Fighters Local 1401 is partnering with Community Housing Sonoma County (CHSC) to create HOME for 7 veterans in the former 1950’s Santa Rosa firehouse on Benton Street. CHSC refurbished and re purposed the firehouse to become Benton Veterans Village housing veterans in need of housing. This former firehouse will be a unique veterans’ housing community due to the enormous commitment made by our Santa Rosa Firefighters to be involved in the veterans’ lives. Led by Santa Rosa Fire Fighters who are veterans, our local fire heroes are committed to creating a long-lasting partnership with our nation’s veteran heroes who will be living at the firehouse.
We are asking for your help. We need your help with cash donations or donations of new or gently used items to finish outfitting the building and each veteran apartment to create the feeling of HOME for our veterans moving into Benton Veterans Village in mid-October.
Santa Rosa Fire Fighters already secured donations for a pool table, dressers, tables and other items. You can participate with cash donation or donate items needed for the apartments and the firehouse. Please visit our website donation page to make a cash donation or view household items that you can donate to help secure HOME for our veterans. https://www.communityhousingsc.org/support-us.
