Veteran’s Restoration Quarters

The Church at Asheville

VRQ is one of the ministries that Tess Williams (Filtering Our Blessings to the Asheville Homeless) became involved with assisting.  Tess asked for volunteers from our church and now we have folks volunteer on the first Friday of every month at the center.

We assist in prepping food, serving dinner, and just being there to support and love on our vets!


ABOUT VETERAN'S RESTORATION QUARTERS

At the ABCCM Veterans Restoration Quarters our mission is to create a principle-based environment and comprehensive residential program that addresses every area of restoration in the life of a homeless veteran. We work to provide each man with stability, personal skill building, educational and training opportunities leading to employment and housing along with the restoration of personal dignity, faith and strength.

Our ministry accomplishes its mission through the diligent and compassionate efforts of trained staff, volunteers and community partners. Over 240 men reside nightly on the VRQ campus, a former 125 room motel. Our veterans are provided housing, meals, case management services, counseling, laundry facilities, a computer lab, gym, chapel and transportation to VA Medical Center appointments. Every effort is made to provide each man with the tools, direction and encouragement needed to arrive at genuine success and full restoration.

The VRQ serves only men but women are given the same opportunities  at the Steadfast House for women and children.

The Christian Ministry will stimulate doing together what individual congregations cannot do separately, in an ecumenical spirit.

We are committed to Christ to translate our faith into cooperative action which ministers to the spiritual, social, physical, economic and emotional needs of our neighbors in Buncombe County.

Through Christ, our pioneer and perfector, we persevere to restore and/or maintain the dignity of every person, bring reconciliation to hostilities, bring new skills, strategies, and hope to the thwarted/disadvantaged lives; share our common victories of life.
