[ARCHIVED] Greenburgh activist, former Marine in danger of living in car

We can't let a local hero become homeless and be forced to live in his car. We need your help in finding him a place to live

A Greenburgh veteran (honorably discharged marine) who lived in Greenburgh and has been active in our community (well liked, someone who has attended Town Board meetings and participated in community life) is in danger of living in his car again because he is homeless. We NEED YOUR HELP finding him a room that he and his wife can live in. He's been married for 50 years.   If you know someone who has an extra room or you have contacts with landlords in the area who have affordable housing that they would like to make available to him and his wife please contact Tamara Clayton at the va (her e mail address is below). Also see a letter requesting help from the Greenburgh Veterans Committee.

Please e mail me with copies of your responses.  We can't let our Greenburgh veteran down and must help him avoid the indignity of living in his car.

My e mail is pfeiner@greenburghny.com

Hello Mr. Feiner,

 

I am writing you this email regarding the veteran  we spoke about yesterday who is seeking help in securing housing in the Greenburgh area. The veteran is an honorably discharged, Marine veteran. The veteran and his wife are currently displaced and on a limited hotel stay being paid for by WestCop SSVF which is paid up until 10/3/21. He may be extended until the 15th, but at that time he will have no place to stay. I am working with the veteran on securing a Hud Vash Section 8 housing voucher, and I will also provide ongoing case management for the veteran and his wife.  

The veteran reports that he is a longtime, well known, Greenburgh resident and community activist, and he would like to live in the area. The veteran is an able bodied man, who reports that he has a lot of experience with maintenance, security, and has helped many of the seniors in the community with running errands and yard work. He said that he has also worked with the children in the community through playing Basketball and mentoring the kids who play. It sounds like he would be an asset to the community, and can be very helpful.

 

The veteran and myself would appreciate any support/leads/recommendations that you or your colleagues can provide.

Mr. Feiner:
The Town of Greenburgh, Veterans Advisory Committee is seeking help from Greenburgh residents in helping a homeless Veteran, and his wife, find a temporary home.
The Veteran, and his wife, were placed in temporary housing, and that housing period is almost at an end. The Veteran and his wife will soon become homeless again.
The Veteran had been active as a volunteer in the Town, attended Town Board Meetings, and was a positive influence on the community. He, and his wife, lost their place to live due to unforeseen economic family impacts which were out of their control. They are on a limited fixed income.
We are requesting the help of town residents in helping this Veteran who Honorably Served his Country to find a place to live.
Please send this message for help out Town wide.
Thank You,
Hugh McAuleyVeterans Advisory Committee
