BBL Hospitality has partnered with Soldier On, a nonprofit that works with homeless veterans and political groups to develop legislation and programs to assist veterans, in order to better the lives of our veterans throughout the United States. BBL Hospitality generously donated furniture to the Gordon H. Mansfield Veterans Community in Pittsfield, MA. This village is the first of its kind, a “limited-equity cooperative model” for veteran housing. Many once homeless veterans now proudly call this home.
This community located in the Berkshires is made up of nicely furnished, single-bedroom townhomes in which veterans have an equity stake. Support programs are also offered here in order to help veterans get back on their feet and establish a sense of security. The furniture donated by BBLH is a very important component of this program and gestures like this go a long way in the transition to permanent housing for those who have sacrificed so much for our country.
