Fond du Lac Veterans Supportive Housing, which opened in 2013, is the most recent housing development for families and single people of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (FDL) designed to support homeless tribal members—in this case veterans—while also advancing the FDL’s commitment to the environment. Participation in a survey process that included reservation lands led FDL to identify several new areas of unmet need among homeless tribal members. The band created reservationwide and departmentspecific housing and supportive services plans which successfully developed first the Supportive Housing Development and, later, the veterans’ housing development.
