Thank you so much to everyone for giving so generously of your time, talent and donations to make the Jubilee House such a great home. I earnestly and wholeheartedly believe that Blue Ridge Log Cabins built more than a house for women veterans, your company helped to rebuild a sanctuary where a generation of women can put their lives back together. A place where I can continue marching and speaking words of confidence to women veterans.
On any given night there are between 130,000 and 200,000 United States veterans who have returned home, but have no home to return to. And a growing number of these veterans are women, seeking shelter for themselves and for their children.
The Fayetteville Observer reports that, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, women make up 18% of the homeless veteran population – a percentage three times as high as in other areas of the country. This makes the work of 15-year Navy Veteran Barbara Marshall and the Jubilee House even more important.
The Jubilee House www.stepnstages.com provides transitional shelter, mentoring and life coaching, job search assistance, and emotional support and counseling to women veterans in the Fayetteville area, so that they can transition from life in the military, to life on the streets, to life in their communities – prepared, happy, and resilient.
Blue Ridge Log Cabins is honored to partner with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to design and create an Extreme Jubilee House that can better serve these American Heroes.
Welcome home, ladies. Welcome home.
