As explained earlier, the The Veterans Sanctuary will provide ALL veterans with micro-apartment housing until permanent housing can be located. Unlike homeless shelters, each veterans will have their own private room measuring approximately 12 feet in length by 8 feet in width. Each room will include a locker to store clothes. Each room will also be equipped with a television with a wide range of channels including movie channels. There will also be a reading lamp and side table to store things. Male and female veterans will have their own secured floors. Access to any floor will require a special card key. Accommodations will also be set aside for service animals. Each complex will have showers that will enable veterans to shower in privacy. Each complex will also provide low cost washing machines and dryers so that veterans can do their laundry. For those veterans who might have more belongings than can fit into a locker -- no problem: safe, secure storage lockers will be available to store those additional items. A cafeteria will provide at least three (3) nourishing meals at either very low or no cost to the veterans. There will also be a library where veterans can access books, and a computer lab where veterans can access the internet. There will be onsite medical care for veterans requiring assistance. Also a social service office where veterans can meet with a variety of individuals that will work tirelessly to find them permanent housing. Likewise, there will also be a community room where veterans can hang out with other veterans. A theater where stage shows can be exhibited. And a chapel will be on-site so that veterans can continue too pursue their spiritual beliefs. Most importantly, veterans can stay at one of these complexes for as long as they need to.

Each facility's exterior will feature a mural of the Iwo Jima stature or similar image. Too, up to two hundred images of soldiers who gave their lives in each of the wars. Those depicted first to be depicted on the exterior will be those veterans who are local to the facility, and then branching out from there. All will be remembered.


The center will be set up as follows with modifications that will occur from time to time. The facility will feature two (2) elevators: one for daily use and the other as a freight elevator.
