Awards & Recognition

CCI Conservation Luminary Award 2018

Veteran’s Place was the recipient of the CCI Conservation Luminary Award for our “Micro Homes Community Project,” in November of 2018. The goal of the Micro Homes Community Project will be to provide fifteen homes, a holistic center, a shared community garden, a gathering pavilion, storm water retention pond, and walking trail on a 3.7-acre site in the Penn Hills neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. This project will demonstrate leading edge concepts in energy, indoor air quality, recycling, sustainability and efficiency and will be available to veterans in need of permanent houses to call their own. Veterans Place is proud to be recognized by an international organization who is committed to helping families and communities create healthier homes and get energy smarter.
