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.
