Wounded Warrior Transitional Housing
The Wounded Warrior Transitional Housing at Vinson Hall Retirement Community was established in 2011 to help some of the many thousands of young, wounded veterans who have returned home from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq requiring a special kind of care and support in an environment that is well suited to their unique needs.
Located in an idyllic McLean, VA location, and home to nearly 200 military officers and government employees, Vinson Hall Retirement Community, supported by the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation, is uniquely situated to support wounded warriors’ physical, mental, and emotional healing.
As our community expands to include additional independent living apartments and a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center, a number of handicap accessible apartments are being renovated to serve as transitional housing for wounded veterans who have been discharged from inpatient treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and continue on active duty while going through a very thorough evaluation period. These wounded warriors, who have given so much, deserve a comfortable place to live that can accommodate their needs and propel them further into a sustainable recovery.
Before we can begin renovating the first apartment at Vinson Hall, NMCGRF must raise $575,000 to cover the associated expenses. Every day we get closer to our goal, having raised more than $500,000 since the Wounded Warrior Transitional Housing was established. With your help we can open our first apartment in 2013!
Residents Assistance Fund
We strive to meet the needs of our residents at all levels of care as they age in place. Donations designated to our “Residents Assistance Fund” support veterans and seniors in our community who have outlived their resources and need financial assistance to maintain a quality of life that is dignified, secure and filled with meaningful experiences and relationships.
In keeping with our VISION, NMCRF supports Vinson Hall Retirement Community in developing community partnerships and innovative models for senior living, wellness and health preserving programs. We regularly partner with institutions of higher learning, hoping that the lessons learned will improve the lives of seniors at VHRC and everywhere.
We strive to be innovative in all that we do and embrace new technology. Your donations designated to “Technology” ensure that we can continue to offer state-of-the-art programs and equipment like Paro, Aframe Digital, and the Sensory Oasis to support seniors and veterans.
