Our veterans occupy a special place in the heart and minds of Americans. As people who have been willing to put their own lives on the line in defense of the freedom and security we all hold so dear, they deserve the highest level of respect and admiration. Beyond that, they deserve a safe, secure place of their own to enjoy the fullest possible life back home.
Where Heroes Come Home.
Opened in the spring of 2019, Liberty Place offers these heroes a very special place to come home. This residential facility includes sixteen private furnished bedrooms and bathrooms plus a common area and recreation room, an exercise room, laundry area, outdoor space and more. Meals are available, with one meal served family-style each day.
Liberty Place is staffed around the clock with Direct Support Professionals onsite to assist with active daily living and medication administration, and to advocate for residents. These very special team members have completed a 10 panel drug screen and lifetime criminal background check, and receive training ins areas such as medication administration, PTSD signs, symptoms and responses, non-violent crisis intervention and prevention, nutrition, diet & wellness, first aid, CPR, AED, safe driving, HIPAA, environmental safety and emergency preparedness, cultural competence and positive behavioral supports. A Licensed Practical Nurse is also on staff.
Our location is within walking distance of a TARC bus stop, and transportation is available as needed. The secure facility is monitored by security cameras 24/7.
The monthly fee of $1,500 includes all of this — room and board, meals, basic toiletries, necessary transportation and recreational activities.
