A sober-living residence for previously homeless veterans in Sonoma County now has a brand-new roof donated free of charge by Wedge Roofing.
In California, 10,836 homeless veterans lack a roof over their heads. Thanks to a local roofing contractor, a Sonoma County sober-living residence for previously homeless veterans now has a brand new roof donated free of charge. Wedge Roofing, recently honored by Rebuilding Together Petaluma as a "hometown hero" due to their philanthropic efforts, has again joined with the non-profit organization to help homeless veterans. In partnership with GAF and ABC Supply, Wedge Roofing donated a new shingle roof to the Rocca House, a sober living residence for previously homeless veterans. Owned by the city of Petaluma and managed by the Veterans Resource Center of America, the Rocca House required critical upgrades. Rebuilding Together organized a community effort to improve health and safety concerns for the eight veterans who live at the the Petaluma home. The most critical and expensive improvement for the home was a complete roof replacement, which could not be accomplished by volunteers. Wedge Roofing provided the $16,000 GAF shingle roof at no cost. "Wedge Roofing is the only roofing company to ever provide a new roof free of charge for a Rebuilding Together client, something they also did in 2017," said Jane Hamilton, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Petaluma. "Wedge Roofing salutes the veterans who are rebuilding their lives in sobriety at the Rocca House," said Ralph Wedge, CEO of Wedge Roofing. "With a new roof over their heads, we hope the veterans are comforted to know the North Bay community cares about their well--being and honors their service to our country."
