Lancaster Barracks

PARTNERS COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT VETERANS IN NEED

LHOP is collaborating with the Lancaster County Veterans Court and others to help our veterans who have fallen on hard times.   The Veterans Court is a 5 year old treatment court in the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas led by Judge Jeffery Wright.  Veterans charged with certain crimes and accepted into the program are afforded an individualized and rigorous treatment program based on proven national research and program models. Check out more at http://www.lancastervccp.org

Working with the Veterans Court Community Partnership (VCCP), a group of volunteers dedicated to providing financial support for Veterans Court, LHOP will purchase a house, which will be known as the “Lancaster Barracks.”  Together we are working to raise $100,000 to purchase a vacant, dilapidated house within Lancaster City and rehabilitate into a home that will accommodate up to three senior Veterans Court participants at a time.  Once half of the funds are raised ($50,000), a house will be purchased and rehab work will begin.  The work will be led by CAPital Workforce, a job skills training program of the Community Action Partnership (CAP) of Lancaster County.

Graduates and current participants of Veterans Court have committed to volunteer and work with LHOP, CAPital Workforce and other community partners who will provide time, skills, and materials, to rehab the house.  It gets better…once the project is complete, some of the veterans who worked on the house will be offered living wage jobs with CAPital Workforce to continue their apprenticeship training in order to be hired by private contractors, small and large, for a rewarding career in the construction trades, something our employers in the community need.
