Tim Gregath, BLF Executive Director, refers to the charity as a "hand up, not a hand out.
Essentially, every participant works their way through a nine month life-fulfillment program.
BLF finds job placements for each participant, largely with local construction companies who hire the veterans as construction laborers and painters.
The funds go to BLF and then used to provide the veterans with food, shelter, a living stipend, and, upon successful completion of the program, an apartment package valued at over $2500.
"Where else can you work for nine months as an unskilled worker, provide yourself with all of your basic needs - food, shelter, clothing - and then at the end have the equivalent of $2500 in savings?
