A Place where people willing to hire homeless veterans can post Jobs.

A Place where homeless veterans and employers can post qualifications and positions.

1. Dear sirs,

Whle preparing to build a homestead raft for my girlfriend and I to retire on it occurred to me that it would be an ideal way to provide cheap housing for homeless veterans. I have contacted Chad Pregracke of living lands and waters and they have generously agreed to supply us with some recycled materials to help us cut costs. The rafts will be built on plastic or steel barrels and electrical power supplied by undershot water wheels. With a garden on the roof they could even grow some of their own food.

Having been a homeless veteran (1969-1970) I know just how much a clean place to live can mean when looking for work. I also know that with the growing “off the grid” movement that the rafts could provide jobs for the veterans. The rafts would be an item that they could build and sell to homeowners along rivers to enable them to get off the grid. I will be building my raft as a factory that can be used to mass produce rafts and I have enough tools to keep 100 veterans working.

What we need is any surplus plastic or steel barrels, plastic buckets, tools, plywood, 2X4’s, 2X6’s, stainless steel bolts and screws et cetera that we can get. I also need some semi skilled (carpenters, plumbers and electricians) homeless veterans in the Rock Island Illinois area that are stable enough to see the job through. I believe that once this pilot program is up and running it will be self sustaining and can be exported to other cities.

    Its small ideas like this that can get a vet moving in the right direction.
    Im not sure how stringent this person would be, but by the looks, all hes askin is honest work for an honest dollar and giving it to his fellow vet.
