COTTONWOOD – Troops transitioning out of the military may not have to worry that they won’t find a home or a job when they come home.
Gary and Jenise Rideout’s new transitional housing development, the Patriot House, which is built, owned and operated by their nonprofit entity, Adopt a Vet, Inc., is now open.
Financed by USDA Rural Development, the Patriot House is a modern, transitional living facility with four individual units and one family unit, which are fully ADA compliant.
The House features a large central kitchen.
Adopt a Vet’s primary mission is to help homeless veterans and veterans at risk of becoming homeless. The
Patriot House is unique in that it dually provides transitional housing with job opportunities at a single site.
Veterans’ employment opportunities are offered through Vets 4 Hire, the Rideouts’ co-located business which can provide veterans with the vital skills and job opportunities they need to become self-sustaining and independent.
“This latest milestone reflects the high value Vetraplex/Vets4Hire and Adopt a Vet, Inc. place on the skills of our nation’s Veterans,” said Vetraplex founder and president, Gary Rideout. “We’re devoted to putting the words, ‘thank you for your service’ into action.”
