NAPLES, Fla. - July 9, 2024 - PRLog -- The Members Club at Marco, a private golf club just north of the island, has awarded a $28,500 grant to Warrior Homes of Collier to support the nonprofit's efforts to provide supportive housing for local veterans.

Proceeds from the club's spring Champions for Charities event will assist Warrior Homes of Collier's efforts to end veteran homelessness in Collier County, said Dale Mullin, a retired Vietnam veteran who serves as the nonprofit's founder and president.

"As one of our earliest supporters, the Members Club at Marco has long shared our core belief that no veteran in need is left behind in Collier County," Mullin said. "This generous gift provides crucial support to the brave men and women of our community who served their country with bravery and honor."

Warrior Homes of Collier operates four residences for local veterans: Alpha House, a short-term, transitional residence for those in recovery from substance abuse; Bravo and Charlie Houses, which serve seniors on fixed incomes who receive rent subsidies (known as supportive housing); and Delta House, a supportive housing complex with 10 apartments for up to 20 veterans, both men and women.

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 David Lawrence Centers, as well as educational opportunities, including college scholarships.

The Members Club of Marco calls two southeast Naples golf courses home: Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club and The Rookery at Marco. Both are located in the shadow of the Jolley Bridge, which links the island to the mainland.
