Upon completion, this project will include eight buildings, each made with state-of-the-art green materials. It will be a model of energy efficiency.
The project would not have been possible had it not been for the generosity of Brian Perin. Brian passed away in 2017 and left an endowment of $3.5 million to the Slate Belt Veterans Association. This generous gift is the cornerstone to move the project forward and help change so many lives.
Brian was co-owner of Grand Central Sanitation. He has also left donations for Northampton Community College, St. Luke’s Hospice, Good Shepherd Pediatric Program and Burnley Workshop.
Our mission is to honor and support those who have returned home, especially those veterans with service-connected disabilities by providing affordable and energy-efficient housing.
