NAPLES, Fla. - April 17, 2024 - PRLog -- A local women's philanthropy group affiliated with the Junior League has donated $20,000 to Warrior Homes of Collier in support of stable housing and support services for veterans in need.

"With each passing day, our goal of ending veterans' homelessness in Collier County gets closer to reality," said Dale Mullin, a retired Vietnam veteran who founded the nonprofit veterans support organization a decade ago. "That mission can only succeed with the continued robust support of individual donors as well as devoted philanthropic groups such as The League Club here in Naples."

The League Club, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization comprised of women who are current or former members of a Junior League affiliated with The Association of Junior Leagues International. The organization's mission is to strengthen communities through fellowship, education, volunteerism and philanthropy.

"For over 37 years, The League Club has honored its 'Commitment to Community' by raising funds and distributing them through grants made to carefully vetted nonprofit agencies throughout Collier and Lee counties," said Club President Mary Ann Lillie. "We are helping to fill the critical human needs that exist in our communities. This mission is truly the heart and soul of The League Club."

Warrior Homes of Collier is among 35 local nonprofits to receive grants totaling $683,000 from The League Club in its current annual funding cycle. Over 37 years, the organization has provided $7.3 million in grants to 217 nonprofit organizations in Collier and Lee counties supporting children, families, the elderly and veterans.

Beyond providing a roof over their heads, Warrior Homes of Collier also connects veterans with support services such as mental health counseling and peer support through the David Lawrence Centers, as well as educational opportunities, including college scholarships.

The first of its facilities, Alpha House, is a short-term, transitional residence for those in recovery from substance use disorders, with sliding-scale rent based on income. The Bravo and Charlie Houses are set aside for seniors on fixed incomes who are no longer in the workforce and receive rent subsidies to defray their expenses, which is known as supportive housing. The newest facility is Delta House, a 20-bed, 10-unit apartment complex that serves male and female veterans.
