Every Veteran, recovering person, or incarcerated person who is transitioning back into the community from a controlled and/or traumatic situation will have the opportunity to live in a sober environment with other men and women in recovery and work a personal transition plan of their choosing as they transition back into the community.
Thank You Menomonie Sunrise Rotary
Community for Veterans home was awarded a grant in the amount of $10,000 from the Menomonie Sunrise Rotary. A grant was written and submitted by Rotary member Millie Lenselink. The focus of the grant was to convert a unused porch into a usable bedroom for one more local veteran. Over the past 2 years many renovation have occurred at the home including the updating of all three bathrooms and creation of 2 additional bedrooms. At this time the house can support up to 10 people. Renovations are due to begin this fall. We can’t say thank you enough to the Menomonie Sunrise Rotary!
