Housing Opportunities & Me is a philosophy and a model of service built on the belief that everyone is entitled to a safe, decent place to live in a community of their choice with access to the services they need to help them live as independently and as self-sufficient as possible. In this phase of our mission, we will work with Warriors, families and the community to build innovative and independent living situations.
