The Jerry L. Knight House

Our battle to end homelessness for our Veterans starts here, the Jerry L. Knight House.

From here, we offer several services including, but not limited to transitional housing and a food pantry.

Transitional Program

To ensure a successful transitional experience, we help residents reclaim self-reliance by:

• Providing a clean and sober living environment for a max of 24 months.

• Obtaining a means of income either by employment or self-employment.

• Teaching them vital life skills.
