The Resouce Center provides Veterans with connections to community resources including Veteran benefits and various other services. We are able to provide financial support of up to $500 direct payment to their debtors, $50 food cards, disability paperwork assistance, and education assistance.
Denny Hutton, a military veteran, who was a strong supporter of this project, as well as commander of VFW Post 10804, worked long and hard for the Center to be recognized as a 501c3 charitable organization. The formal dedication of the Center occurred in April 2014. Because of all the hard work Denny had done, we named the shelter portion of the building The Hutton House. Over the last few years this four bedroom, two and one-half baths house has been has been instrumental in helping 55 veterans, who had been living in their cars, get back on their feet and returned to society. Needless to say, without the generosity of all the volunteers at the Center, this could not have been possible.
The Rotary House is an 8 x 40 ft shipping container that has been fully transformed into a tiny home that houses a veteran and their spouse. The home has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, and living room space with an additional pull-out couch. The container was donated to VWHRC and was sponsored by the Little River Rotary club. It was installed in 2017 and is the first tiny home in our tiny home project. We are looking forward to many more!
