Priscilla’s House becomes a home to female veterans

By on May 13, 2019

Monroe County is fortunate to have a place for female veterans to reside in and try and get their lives back together. This place is called Priscilla’s House named after the person who donated the home to the Veterans Outreach Center and has also been a volunteer for the past 20 years. 

Opened in March of 2017, the home consists of two apartments, one upper and one lower. Presently one female veteran and child are allowed in each apartment. They can stay for up to two years for now, with changes being made for the future that will allow them to stay one year. 

The purpose is to help veterans through a transition period so they can eventually move into an apartment of their choice that they can afford. To stay at Priscilla’s House, the female veteran has to be homeless and will need to work with a case manager seeking assistance and actively getting help so she will be able to succeed on her own.  

American Legion Auxiliary Unit #330 in Spencerport has donated clothing, staples, paper products, toiletries and personal care items to Priscilla’s House, and given financial help through their poppy fund for the past two years.
