To provide transitional housing for our Veterans.
Serenity Veterans Village is determined to create housing and opportunity within the veteran community. our company's goals are to work as a team with large corporations, donors, grants, housing authorities in Ellis and surrounding counties, the VA, construction companies, and contractors to accomplish 4 key things.
1) Help end veteran homelessness by building low to no income tiny homes and/or apartment complex developments
2) hire unemployed vets eager to find work and to train vets eager to work and help build housing for their fellow brothers and sisters
3) Care for vets experiencing PTSD*. We aim to provide no-cost PTSD care from qualified and licensed professionals who have a passion for helping vets improve their lives
4) Finally to spread this movement nationwide…

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Lauren Andrade got the idea for SVV, which has locations in Waxahachie and Palmer, a decade ago when she herself was still a soldier.
“When I got back from Iraq in 2010, within six months about three of the soldiers I was deployed with were homeless. I couldn’t do much to help them, but I decided if I ever had the means I would do this,” she recalled.
The mission of SVV is simple, to provide housing to homeless veterans. Currently, they house nine, which includes two children and two spouses who are not veterans themselves.
“We aren’t a weekly or monthly thing. We can be permanent (Vietnam veterans seem to choose this option, she said). We’ve graduated one family of four, and one family (veteran and his daughter) in the last two years,” Andrade said.
