Do you think it’s “right” that any Veteran who served our country should be homeless? Without a purpose or meaning in their life?
And yet we have hundreds of thousands of Veterans sleeping on the street or in shelters because it remains a challenging task for them to access the benefits they deserve due to the complexities of navigating the outdated VA system.
OUR VISION IS SO BIG AND SO POSSIBLE (AND SO NEEDED)
Our initiative involves acquiring vacant hotels and buildings located in the heartland of the United States. Through extensive renovations, we are transforming these properties into comfortable residences for Veterans and their families. In addition to providing housing, we are also incorporating a dedicated area for computer servers. This server space will serve a dual purpose: enabling us to offer cloud computing services and creating employment opportunities for disabled veterans. These veterans will be trained in various Information Technology fields, including cloud computing, server hardware configuration, web design, and other significant areas of work.
As part of our initial phase, we are focusing on renovating trucks and truck campers to serve as temporary shelter for veterans in need. This will help address the overflow of individuals seeking housing while we work towards developing improved barracks for incoming veterans.
Our Bonnie Lake, Washington property is now online!
Our mission goes beyond acquiring individual buildings; we aspire to purchase entire abandoned towns in the western United States. Our vision is to establish inclusive and supportive communities where Veterans can flourish, knowing that their lives hold immense value. As these communities thrive and become vibrant, our Veterans will experience a profound sense of belonging on their own home soil. This self-sustaining social impact model has already demonstrated success in various sectors.
We will soon share visual updates on the progress we are making. If you are ready to contribute your skills, financial support, materials, or wisdom, we warmly invite you to join us. Together, we have the power to turn this dream into a reality.
MEET THE BOARD MEMBERS WHO ADMINISTRATE THIS AMAZING NONPROFIT
These are four tough, determined professionals who are giving their all to support our nation’s Veterans.
Christopher Snook, MBA, CEO of Veteranet and Board President,, is a disabled Veteran who served in the Air Force and Army National Guard. He was injured during his service having metal implants in his face to hold it together. His implants have caused him infection and pain which have made his day to day life difficult. He goes to the VA hospital in Seattle and is well treated, but he see the homeless camps on his way, full of injured and sick Americans. His heart weighs heavy as he knows just miles away tech companies get rich providing services while these men and women suffer. He wonders why we can not enable these underprivileged, forgotten soldiers to do the same thing in apartment buildings just far enough out of metropolitan cities to allow them peace. This is part of what motivates Christopher to have Veteranet. He wants others Veterans to have a place to go for help and resources. Christopher persevered and became a well-known information technology and cloud architect for companies such as HP , IBM and Microsoft. Christopher believes in his fellow brothers and sisters in arms and will never stop until this vision is a reality. See his professional background on LinkedIn here.
