Housing Property Updates
Longtime partners Standard Heating & Air Conditioning simultaneously donated air conditioning units, as well as their time and expertise to update the A/C systems in our houses. They completed this important work just in time for the record-setting heat wave we experienced last week. The age of some MACV houses require special expertise and ongoing advisement on how to get the best return on investment in terms of heating and cooling, which play vital roles in the health of our residents.
The Heartland Outlet, an outlet store which supports the HEART ministry of Hosanna Church, donated or sold flooring materials at heavily discounted prices for three MACV-owned transitional homes in 2021 alone. Their store also sells household items like furniture and small appliances directly to low-income consumers with vouchers for the store. Ministries like HEART and social enterprises like Heartland Outlet address this need by making furniture and basic amenities accessible even for our lowest income clients.
Between these two partners, MACV’s houses are in better shape than ever. We look forward to engaging with our volunteers and stakeholders to make sure MACV transitional housing offers Veterans the best setting to get their lives back on track. MACV thanks partners like Heartland Outlet and Standard Heating & Air Conditioning for such great work and collaboration with our operations team.
