COMFORT HOMES VILLA PROJECT
Revive Alaska Community Services is constructing a 40-unit Comfort Homes Villas facility for housing seniors and veterans who are on fixed incomes and are finding it harder to make ends meet given the rising inflation. These veterans are people who have served the nation the best they could in their prime but need our help now.
Comfort Homes Villas will include:
On site kitchen with weekly hot meals available to residents.
On site food pantry available to residents in need with regular weekly distribution times as well as available on an emergency basis. This program will supplement the resident’s grocery bill.
The Veterans Family Recreation Center:
Comfort Homes residents will have access to an on-site community and resource center complete with a business suite, gym/exercise area, and common living space.
Comfort Homes Villas will Include:
We have also acquired two accessible-transport buses to help our disabled residents get to important places of need. The recreation center will provide an outlet for recreation and a place for veterans and their families to get away and participate in activities that are family-oriented, therapeutic, and relaxing.
