Let's Change that.

The Heroes Center Services
The Heroes Center is currently undergoing renovations to provide shelter to student veterans attending, or wanting to attend, Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC). 14% of GTCC veterans surveyed last fall, said “they were homeless or in need of housing during their time at GTCC.” Of all veterans surveyed, 59% would use the camp housing if they were in need. The camp is ideally located minutes from the GTCC campus and downtown High Point. Outdoor sports, including hunting and fishing, are minutes away.

The Heroes Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve, support, and strengthen student veterans with programs, services, events, and resources. By housing student veterans in a community of their peers, hosting activities, and providing access to professional resources in a peaceful and nurturing environment, the Heroes Center helps veterans complete college and transition successfully from military to civilian life.
Transition to Civilian Life
The challenges of transitioning back to civilian life after a tour of duty can be overwhelming. Many of our veterans have been exposed to life-or-death situations and are still haunted by ghosts of their time in the service. Coping can push their capacities to the limit, and as a result, many veterans drop out of college. The Heroes Center will take one of their barriers of completing school away, by offering free housing to vets.
