Founded in 2016, by Felicia Huesman, The Barracks Project (TBP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to serve and give back to current service members and honorably discharged veterans (with no record of misconduct or felonies).
The foundation of our organization was built on combating veteran homelessness, but over the years (with the help of our AMAZING volunteers and supporters) we have been able to expand and do so much more than just that! What started as a “crazy idea” has quickly grown to be so much more than we could have ever imagined!
We firmly believe in “SUPPORTING THE LIVES THAT FOUGHT FOR OURS,” which means that every dollar donated to TBP, goes 100% toward our mission of serving and helping our veterans, service members and their families. We are available to assist our veterans and service members in many ways, including: transitional/temporary housing (if eligible), emergency financial assistance (see our financial application for more information), hygiene and food donations, interview clothing and interview preparation, grooming services, care packages from home to deployed service members, and more as applicable to our mission.
We have NO PAID STAFF, strictly VOLUNTEERS. This is to ensure that 100% of our funds is used in SUPPORTING THE LIVES THAT FOUGHT FOR OURS and so that we can assist and serve as many veterans and service members as possible.
No words will ever fully express our gratitude for the support we receive. A donation in any amount or sharing of our mission will go a long way in allowing us to continue changing lives for the better and we promise it will be appreciated. Please let us know if we can answer any questions, we will be more than happy to assist you.
In the words of our founder and president, “Be the change you wish to see in the world!”
