The Veteran Resource Program (VRP) in Richmond has received a $12,000 grant from the Home Depot Foundation.

The VRP helps veterans with housing, benefits, education and employment. Earlier this year, a proposal was submitted to the foundation by. Rhonda Harris, executive director of the VRP. Members of the foundation’s team toured the VRP to determine the site’s structural and appliance needs.

< p>Depot Foundation volunteers will enhance the VRP facility by creating an outdoor space with a redwood deck and raised garden beds, installing lighting and benches in front of the mural painted by VRP’s veterans, upgrading the shared kitchen area, addressing safety issues and making the bathrooms ADA accessible.

“This is a tremendous show of support by The Home Depot, an outstanding member of our business community here in Richmond,” says Harris. “We are so grateful to have the VRP’s environment improved for the well-being of our veterans.”

Work is scheduled to begin on January 15. An Open House reception will be held after the work is completed.

 

The Veterans Resource Program is located at 934 Maine Ave. in Richmond.
