The US Vets Multi-Family project provides transitional housing for veterans located on the March Air Force Base in Riverside County. The complex was planned and designed to create a walkable campus setting that provides a nurturing, rehabilitative environment and facilities for housing, meals and career training counseling for veterans, making their transition back into the community as smooth as possible.
The housing component is comprised of three different programs. The VIP (Veterans in Progress) program provides short term dorm style housing with on-site conseling for veterans at high risk. The efficiency program provides single room occupancy units for veterans whoa re being re-trained for the job market or those who have found work but are in need or low-cost housing. The third component accommodates the families of veterans who are also in need of lost cost housing.
Recreational outdoor spaces and dining facilities are included as part of the campus as well. This project is designed to be LEED Certified and all the three and four story buildings employ Type V construction.
