Tiny home community could bring shelter, support, employment to veterans in Orange County

Rachel Ettlinger | Oct 19, 2020 | Times Herald-Record

Rumshock Veterans Foundation, a nonprofit founded in February 2019 to provide military members with post-service support, received $400,000 that was secured and announced by New York state Sen. Jen Metzger’s office at a news conference Tuesday at the Greenwood Lake Elks Lodge 2067. That funding will go toward purchasing land and eventually breaking ground to make the estimated $3 million project, Rumshock Village, a reality. In April 2024, Congressman Pat Ryan appropriated a $1,000,000 amount for the Rumshock Port Jervis project, enabling construction to begin in the fall 2024.

A Sustainable Community for Veterans with Five Important  Components…
There is no way to adequately thank the men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom and safety. But we can offer them a second chance – an opportunity to be successful members of a supportive community! The staff and volunteers at Rumshock Veterans Foundation are working to do all we can to offer veterans the opportunity to improve their physical, mental, and emotional health as well as reconnect with society through meaningful activities. There are five components to the Foundation’s sustainable program: 1) Rumshock Village, a tiny residential community of affordable housing for veterans; 2) Hydroponic Farming, maintained by Village residents; 3) Victory Transportation, to assist Village residents in making appointments to healthcare providers and other necessities; 4) E-Waste Recycling, involving the recovery of materials to be used in future production; and 5) Canine Companionship, for needed emotional support.
