Foxhole Homes for Veterans

Once again, Saint Job of Pochaiv Orthodox Christian Church is taking orders for its holiday cookie boxes. This year, as in years past, the proceeds from the box sales are donated to Foxhole Homes.

Located near Alamogordo, New Mexico, Foxhole Homes aims to alleviate the widespread problem of veteran homelessness and disconnection, by providing environmentally friendly and low-cost to veterans that find themselves in a difficult situation.

The homes are built using “Earthship” technology, which utilizes recycled and non-traditional materials to keep costs and energy consumption low. Residents will be able to use “sweat equity” in the building and purchasing of the homes.

Renewable and sustainable agriculture are being used to transform part of the property into a food forest. Cottage industries, camp grounds, and social services also are in development to support future residents.

  1. Thanks Carol-
    It breaks me up when I hear of any Veteran being homeless and hungry.
    Hopefully we will stop giving Crime Minister Netanyahu and Israel Billions of dollars and keep the money at home to help our Veterans live meaningful lives.
