The atmosphere was filled with hope and gratitude as United Veterans Beacon House celebrated the second home revitalized through the Restoring Homes Restoring Hope with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 27th.

The $275,000 project was undertaken in its entirety by the Bolla Charity Foundation, which “adopted” the house in support of the initiative. The revitalization effort included a comprehensive transformation that truly reimagined the space. The home gained a refreshed exterior with new roofing, siding, and windows. Inside, a custom kitchen and remodeled bathrooms added modern comfort. The inclusion of landscaping, trex deck, a new driveway, and central air-conditioning further improved the space. This incredible transformation goes beyond physical changes; it provides a supportive environment that recognizes and honors these veterans’ sacrifices for our country.

Immediately following the ceremony, friends, veterans, board members, and elected officials had an opportunity to tour the home and meet the veteran residents. It was indeed a wonderful day for all in attendance.

The Restoring Homes Restoring Hope initiative is an invitation to the business community on Long Island – many of which employ veterans that benefitted from UVBH’s varied programs, including job skills training – to adopt in part or in whole one of the 10 remaining homes in dire need of rehabilitation.
