The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund - Veterans Dormitory

Posted By: Sharon vanSpronsen (June 1, 2022)
The FWSF offers a program that supports Michigan-based veterans who are experiencing financial hardship because of injuries sustained in the Iraq or Afghanistan campaigns. There are currently 3,800 homeless vets in Michigan.
Henry Ford built the Veterans’ Dormitory located in Canton, MI in Cherry Hill Village, during WWII. It provided housing for disabled veterans who worked at the Ford Factory. Canton’s Partnership for the Arts & Humanities restored the dormitory. It currently serves as a residence for veterans struggling to find housing and those who need a supportive environment.
The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund is leasing the Veterans’ Dormitory for vets who are in need of temporary housing. The FWSF has transitioned three men into permanent, stable housing so far. Your donation will thank veterans for their service and it will enable The FWSF to continue their supportive work in the community. The FWSF, a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization
