    Esperanza en Escalante (EEE), a nonprofit agency formed in 1989 by the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 106 of Tucson, works with Pima County’s Kino Veterans’ Workforce Center to help veterans obtain employment or vocational training.  The U.S. Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs and Southern AZ VA Healthcare System provide funding for EEE veteran services.

    2004 Pima County G.O. Affordable Housing Bond Program funds provided for the construction of a paved roadway around the center of the site, sidewalks, parking, underground utilities and landscaping which support the first of several phases of housing construction.  The first phase completed in June 2013 produced a three-unit, 15-bed complex for male veterans; a five-unit, 10-bed complex for female veterans and their families; and a multipurpose community center. Pima County’s investment in infrastructure will support continued development at this site, including construction of a total of 203 transitional and permanent housing units for veterans and their families by 2024.  EEE will seek additional federal and state funds in addition to private donations to build transitional and permanent housing for 60 persons by 2017 and an additional 48 units of transitional and permanent housing by 2024.
