The Yates House for Military Veterans, Inc. (TYHMV) is a private non-profit corporation that has been formed to address the lack of housing for military veterans in central New Jersey. The Yates House was formed for the purpose of giving back to those veterans who risked their lives to provide security and protection to our nation. More specifically, Yates House provides permanent housing and supportive services to help transition homeless and in need veterans to self-sufficiency and become productive citizens. The goal is to reintegrate homeless veterans into society, as they are often excluded because of various emotional wounds of post military service.
While clients are able to experience a safe and pleasant place to live in an urban community, they also receive additional supportive services such as meals, transportation, and counseling for self-enrichment training. To support this effort, Mr. Yates has established collaborative relationships with local agencies throughout New Jersey that provide additional social service programs.
During renovation, the exterior of the building will be repaired, with its historic character in mind, and an addition to the rear of the building will provide a modern stairways and handicap access. The building is located in the historic district of Plainfield, NJ. This vision will be presented to the Plainfield Zoning and Planning Board for consideration.
We engage a humanitarian spirit, social responsibility and determination to ensure that all military personnel returning from active duty and those who have served in the past are given a quality standard of living as well as supportive services to meet their needs.
