World Gym, originator of the full-service gym model and a great American fitness brand, has provided all the equipment for a new gym at the U.S. Vets housing facility, an organization committed to ending veteran homelessness by providing housing, mental health support, job counseling and more.
“The health and wellness of our veterans is something we’re incredibly passionate about – and now, we will be playing an active role in ensuring that veterans have healthy lifestyles,” said World Gym CEO, Lewis Stanton. “Veterans represent a significant percentage of our people cross our franchise network and we intend to further support the good work they are doing.”
World Gym will host a ribbon-cutting on May 25 at 10:00 AM at the U.S. Vets veteran housing facility, located at 733 South Hindry Ave. in Inglewood, CA, to unveil a newly outfitted gym with cardio equipment, free weights and workout machines.
Nearly thirty-eight thousand veterans experience homelessness, accounting for approximately nine percent of homeless adults in the United States. U.S. Vets not only works to end veteran homelessness; they provide support and resources for employment and mental health counseling to ensure that every veteran is treated with dignity and can maintain productive independence.
“Our mission is to end veteran homelessness, and to help provide these people who have sacrificed so much for our country with programs and resources to give them every opportunity to live with dignity and independence,” said U.S. Vets Development and Communication Manager, Axel Diaz. “This facility will help the organization continue to provide support – whether it be job placements, housing, or counseling – to our veteran residents who urgently need it.”
