Visionary, Village of Valor
Founder & Executive Director,
Faith Hope Love Charity, Inc.
Faith*Hope*Love*Charity, Inc. (FHLC) is a grass-roots organization whose sole purpose is to serve the needs of veterans. FHLC has several programs that assist veterans and their families to stay out of and/or to emerge from homelessness. Over the last two years through our First Stop Veterans’ Resource Center and Stand Down House programs, FHLC has reintegrated over 2,000 veterans and
their families into permanent housing and stopped over 500 evictions. Although progress is beingmade, it is not enough.
Every day we are finding our veterans and their families living in deplorable
and unsafe conditions. This is a serious and ever-growing problem in Palm Beach County. We must
commit to providing safe and affordable permanent housing for veterans and their families, and we
must do better to meet this need. Finding permanent housing for needy veterans and their families
has become one of FHLC’s top priorities.
FHLC is proud to announce the construction of an exciting project, a--first-of-its-kind-- permanent
supportive housing complex for veterans, “The Village of Valor.” This will be more than just a place
for veterans to live. It will be a beautiful place in which veterans will be able to receive everything
they need to succeed, including social services, counseling, job training, childcare, and emotional
support. The Village of Valor will be a place that veterans deserve, someplace they will be proud to
call home, and someplace, we as grateful citizens, would be proud to place our heroes in.
This initiative has been a challenge, but we genuinely believe that it has been part of the journey.
As a small non-profit, we face and stand up to challenges every day. Our mandate is clear and
Defeat is not an option.
We need the efforts and resources of many to make the Village of Valor a reality. This is your opportunity to do more than say “Thank You for Your Service.” Please join us March 23, 2024, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, located in the beautiful city of West Palm Beach, FL as a Sponsor
of our "16th Annual Gala – Celebrating Veterans Every Day.”
