Interfaith is building a new 10,000 sq ft Veteran and Family Resource Center on N. Ash St. in Escondido: This project will be an invaluable resource to serve local homeless veterans and their families. ICON is glad to partner with Johnson & Jennings and the rest of the project’s team for this center’s building supply needs and most importantly, we are grateful for this opportunity to help and support those in our community who deserve it the most.
Interfaith is the largest provider of veteran’s services in North County, according to Dean Dauphinais, director of veterans services for Veterans Assistance of San Diego, a division of Interfaith Community Services. Interfaith is trying to raise $2.75 million to complete construction of the new Veteran and Family Resource Center in Escondido. Visit their website here for ways to support and get involved.
