Thank you, West Edge Investments!
In the fight to end Veteran homelessness in Minnesota, MACV has countless valuable allies in our network of Veterans one example is our partnership with West Edge Investments.
MACV began working with West Edge Investments in 2021 after Graham Smith, from the Graham Smith Realty Team connected our COO, Jon Lovald, to Jacob Bolinger from West Edge Investments. After that initial introduction, the brainstorming began.
The innovation and brainstorming led to creating this partnership that will most benefit the Veterans we serve, keeping in mind our goal to have Minnesota be the 4th state in the nation where Veteran homelessness is at functional zero.
MACV has been enjoying the back and forth brainstorming and collaboration on innovative housing solutions. Beyond work with MACV, Jacob, Jamie and their team are looking to adopt some of the MACV housing solutions by starting to incorporate Acessory Dwelling Units (ADUS) from YardHomes on their properties. West Edge Investments, is Veteran owned has been a critical partner statewide, making our growth into property acquirers and managers feasible.
“West Edge Investments have been instrumental in the success of MACV’s drive to end veteran homelessness. They have assisted in sourcing and securing new buildings, as well as overseeing the rehabilitation of units. Most recently, the staff of West Edge investments provided a huge push to complete units before the Powederhorn open house, as well as coordination and a financial gift towards the staging of our beautiful tour apartment” -Sara Riegle, MACV’s Vice President of Property Operations
We recognized the incredible work they have done for us in person at our recent Powederhorn Open House but we can’t express our gratitude enough!
Thank you, to Jacob, Jamie, Adam, and the rest of the West Edge Investments team for your continued support of MACV and our mission to end Veteran homelessness. Together, we are working diligently to prioritize affordable housing for Veterans to ensure they have access to quality housing. We believe that nobody who has served our country should be without a home, and with partners like West Edge Investments, we are one step closer to achieving this goal.
