Once complete, the one-stop veterans center will offer short-term housing, an onsite medical clinic to address health concerns and provide rehabilitation therapy services, and other amenities to promote physical well-being and boost social interaction.


The developer’s team—Ward, in particular—has been re- searching ways to combat issues of homelessness, suicide and unemployment among the veteran population in Pennsylvania. They decided the best way to accom- plish this goal was to design a space that not only offers medical and mental health services, but also provides stable housing options to homeless veterans, and also to those who require continual, comprehensive support services necessary to help them rebuild their lives.


Hope, according to Ward, is the “untapped secret


weapon” that drives healing and health in the lives of American veterans.


“Healing for these individuals starts with wellness and recovery. We are excited to help them learn to manage their illnesses and set goals to help them resume productive lives. We plan to offer rehabilitation programs, counseling, opportunities to pursue contin- ued education and job skills training, and healthy social, recreational and volunteer options,” says Ward. “Whether they need daily living assistance, medication monitoring, crisis interventions, social skills counsel- ing, transportation to outside medical appointments, or other things, our programs and professionals will offer as much or as little support as each individual requires.”


“ It’s not often that you get to repurpose a large-scale prison complex. This is a project where precise, cost-effective coordination between specialists in architecture, engineering and construction is crucial to meeting the owner’s needs and expectations.” - Charles Crowder


With hope, healing and health at the forefront of this mission, the new veteran rehabilitation campus will indeed become a solution that touches the lives and hearts of many in this Pennsylvania community—and beyond.
