The Veterans Retreat Center is a 20-acre facility for military veterans to gather with their families and community members through outdoor, therapeutic, educational and entertainment programming. The center sustained severe damage during Hurricane Harvey. In an effort to help the VRC regain full operational capacity, our volunteers will refresh and restore outdoor areas of the facility. Join us as we landscape new walking trails, repair damaged structures, build storage, seating, new pavilions and more.
COVID-19 Safety: In accordance with state and federal guidance to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, all projects will have a cap on volunteers. Social distancing and sanitation will be a priority, and face masks will be required.
If you are feeling sick, have had any COVID symptoms which include fever, cough and shortness of breath in the past 14 days, or identify as having a higher risk for severe illness please stay home and be safe. While we encourage participation for those that are low-risk and in good health, we ask everyone, irrespective of age and health status, to adopt extra safety measures. We look forward to seeing you healthy at a future project.
The Mission Continues will ensure the safety of our volunteers, partners and the community by implementing safety protocols and procedures. Please contact Elizabeth Barlow at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
