Cooper Kitchen

The Mark Cooper House provides homeless veterans who are battling substance use disorders and/or mental illness the tools they need to rebuild their lives so that they can successfully transition to permanent housing.

Unlike other transitional programs, the Mark Cooper House includes a vocational component – veterans who are able to work will be expected to work – and they will get the support they need to join the workforce. The facility has 34 units and houses up to 38 veterans paying 30% of their income. Participants can stay up to two years.
