We Proudly Support Veterans’ Place

Franklin West, Inc. is proud to support the work of Veterans’ Place.

On December 20th, the Apartment Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh (AAMP)—of which Franklin West, Inc. is an executive board member—presented Veteran’ Place with a contribution of continuing support for anticipated extensive facility renovations, including a new class rooms, laundry facilities,  and an expanded food bank area.

Veterans’ Place is located on Washington Blvd., only a few blocks away from Franklin West’s Shadyside office. They offer a wide array of services dedicated to addressing issues that our veterans face in the Pittsburgh region, including a day program, a transitional housing program, and an employment program.

Franklin West, Inc. also made a donation yesterday, remembering some of our family of employees and friends who proudly served.

Mr. Franklin A. West (U.S. Army)

Mr. John M . Boering (U.S. Air Force)

Mr. Alvin P. “Butch” Lauer (U.S. Army)

Mr. Carl E. Mills (U.S. Air Force)

Mr. Bernard M. McGivern II (U.S. Navy)

Mrs. Gene McNamee Kincaid (U.S. Marine Corps)

Franklin West hopes that these contributions aid the mission of Veterans’ Place in ending homelessness among Pittsburgh veterans.

The holidays can be very difficult for veterans, for those interested in supporting Veterans’ Place, please visit their site here.
