May 11, 2024

Thank you to everyone who joined us for an evening of elegance, entertainment, and philanthropy as we gathered to support the mission of the Veterans Transition Center of California (VTC) to empower Veterans to move from crises to self-sufficiency.

We are deeply grateful for our community - coming together to make a difference in the lives of those who sacrificed so much in defense of our Nation. Your financial support continues to provide invaluable resources to help provide housing and resources to homeless and at-risk Veterans.

Sip, Savour, & Salute

November 9, 2023

VTC & EAH Housing hosted a Wall Raising for Lightfighter Village, with elected officials, leaders, and community members coming together to celebrate the exciting milestones reached on this project. It was a beautiful moment to share as we take another step towards providing permanent supportive housing for 70 Veterans and their families. We want to send a special thanks to Mayor Bruce Delgado, EAH’s VP of Real Estate Development & Construction Dave Egan, US Representative Jimmy Panetta’s Director of District Operations Erin Davison, California State Assemblymember Dawn Addis, Monterey County Supervisor Wendy Root Askew, our very own CEO Kurt Schake, and VTC founder Dr. Tom Griffin for sharing powerful remarks on the importance of projects like this during the event. It's rare to be able to commemorate affordable housing developments, and we are grateful to the community for your support of Lightfighter Village. To see more images click here!

To kick off Veterans Day weekend, The Heinrich Team generously hosted the Sip, Savour, & Salute fundraiser for the VTC at Twisted Roots Winery. It was a delightful time enjoying a drink, sharing delicious treats, and raising funds to help us continue the work put in by our team. We want to thank the Heinrich family for their kindness & everyone who attended. We hope you all had as much fun as we did. For more photos click here!
