Soldier On

Western Massachusetts is home to Soldier On. The Soldier On program operates two facilities. In Leeds, Massachusetts a 165-bed shelter is located in two buildings leased from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The Berkshire Veterans Residence in Pittsfield, Massachusetts provides transitional living space for 71 formerly homeless veterans. Both facilities are managed by formerly homeless veterans, a peer approach that clearly has advantages. The people served take active responsibility in creating and maintaining their living space.

On this Memorial Day weekend our nation honors the men and women who have protected and served. I don’t believe there is a better way to show our respect, care and appreciation for our veterans than to support Soldier On.
