2016 Establishing a Hospitality House for Veteran Families
In the past, there was no Hospitality House for providing temporary housing to families of the Fresno VA Hospital patients. Central Valley Veterans had long dreamed of purchasing a single or multi-family housing unit that would provide respite housing for families. This residence would also provide temporary emergency housing for families on the streets. We have also set up a food pantry at the house.
In recent years, donors have helped us maintain the property, upgrade items as needed and created a temporary home away from home for veterans in their moment of need. We are proud of what the house has been able to offer our community and our community partners who continue to step up to support keeping this house a reality.
This video was presented at The Star Spangled Ball in 2021 to honor the life of our beloved board member, Bill Gonzalez. Bill truly loved Central Valley Veterans and did all he could for every veteran he met. Bill did everything he could to make the house a home for all who entered
