Welcome to LZ Phoenix

  • Due to generous support of the community, we put a down payment on our own home.

LZ Phoenix provides transitioning and homeless veterans, their families, and pets with temporary housing, and tools necessary to arise as self-sustainable members of the community.

Our programs empower veterans to become financially self-sufficient by providing safe, transitional housing for up to 90 days. During the transition, we coordinate with other agencies in the region who assist with permanent housing, food, clothing, health care, substance abuse treatment, and transportation.

LZ Phoenix, our transitional shelter located in Waverly, Iowa, is Iowa’s only shelter that caters specifically¬†to members or prior members of the armed forces and allows family members to remain with the veteran throughout the rehousing process.
