The Veterans’ Place Inc. (TVPI), an IRC Code 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation located in Central Vermont in the town of Northfield with a population of 6207. The Veterans’ Place is an established Grant/Per Diem program that operates under the Veterans Administration (VA). The house is a transitional home for 26 homeless male veterans; they may reside up to 24 months. The Veterans’ Place opened in 2009 and was the first and is the largest transitional home for homeless veterans in the State of Vermont. More than 280 veterans have been assisted since the home was opened. We are pleased to announce that we have received funding from The Home Depot Foundation.  The Veterans’ Place staff, along with help from an English Professor at Norwich University, applied for and was awarded the funds. The funding will cover the cost to replace all of the windows in the building. The current windows dating back to the 60’s will be replaced with energy efficient windows. The savings in our heating bill could be as much as 15% a year. To learn more about The Veterans’ place please log onto our web-site www.vermontveteransplace.org
