Seventeen Veterans are out of the cold, just in time for Christmas, thanks to a new housing development in Medford. On December 15, ACCESS opened their latest housing development (their 17th development), Victory Place, a 17-unit affordable Housing complex for Veterans. Victory Place (pictured right) is made up of nine studios and eight one-bedroom apartments. The complex was developed by ACCESS, but is privately owned by Fred Herrmann of Commercial Counsel, Inc.
This project originated in 2015 when Mr. Herrmann approached ACCESS about helping him develop the property for Veteran housing. “Veterans are the backbone of this country, and this is a good way for us to give something back to them,” says Mr. Herrmann.
This project was made possible thanks to a $1.96 million-dollar grant from Oregon Housing and Community Services to ACCESS allowing the organization to provide housing assistance to Veterans. All residents will also have support of much needed resources provided through case management and/or referral services by ACCESS’ Support Services for Veteran Families program or other Veteran programs.
