Atlas Roofing Partners with Veterans Community Project for Phase Two of Veterans Housing Village

Atlas Roofing Corporation, in partnership with the Veterans Community Project (VCP), will begin Phase Two construction for the Veterans Housing Village in Kansas City, Missouri. The Veterans Community Project’s housing village is a specialized community of 50 tiny homes that provide transitional housing and address the underlying cause of veteran homelessness.

Phase Two of the project officially begins with the Atlas Build Day on August 8. Atlas employees, contracting partners and VCP leaders will be on the site to begin the construction of more than 13 tiny homes, which will be added to the existing neighborhood of finished homes, a community center and resource facility of full-time staff of case managers to assist the veterans. The addition of Phase Two will make more room for homeless veterans, where they can seek rehabilitation, job assistance services, and support from their peers in a safe environment.

“Our partnership with Atlas Roofing has been instrumental in the successful completion of our first veteran village development,” said Brandonn Mixon, co-founder and Chief Project Officer at Veterans Community Project. “Thanks to the high-performance value that the Atlas products offer, I am confident that our residents will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer while we keep our energy costs low.”

Atlas is collaborating with key partners and volunteers to provide specialized services and on-site contractor support. Partners, including ABC Supply Company and JR Roofing, will be donating time and/or services for the construction. The Build Day event will focus on the installation of Atlas EnergyShield, a foil faced polyiso continuous insulation for residential and commercial exterior walls. Meeting all building standards, the EnergyShield product allows for short term savings and long-term energy efficiencies.

Phase Two of the Veterans Village will consist of 13 tiny homes that will house homeless veterans and assist in their mission to end veteran homelessness. VCP has set a goal to complete Phase Two by Veterans Day 2018 and will rely on the support of the community, donors and volunteers to make this goal a reality. The VCP will work with volunteers on a majority of the hands-on building process so the whole community can get involved. Trade partners will complete mechanical, electrical and plumbing work as needed. During the build process, VCP will also be planning and coordinating Phase Three and Four to complete all 49 homes and the community center in a timely fashion.
