PROJECT COMMENCEMENT: Monday, February 3, 2020

                           

Proud Sponsors

A Message From Joseph O. Oltmans II

Chairman Emeritus of Oltmans Companies & Board Member of the OC Rescue Mission

Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Orange County Rescue Mission’s Tustin Veterans Outpost project. In 2019, the Orange County Rescue Mission provided transitional housing and services to 40 homeless veterans and family members at Tustin Veterans Outpost, and 443 homeless families and individuals at the Village of Hope.

Over the years, Oltmans Construction Co. has remained a strong sponsor of this organization and its mission to end homelessness. When we were offered the opportunity to assist with building additional homes for homeless veterans, it was our honor to do what we could to give back.

In 2008, Oltmans donated its services to build the Village of Hope campus before supporting efforts to construct the original Tustin Veterans Outpost, opened in 2016. Now, four years later, this new project will expand upon the Veterans Outpost’s existing operations to renovate three (3) existing apartment buildings on adjacent property recently acquired by the Rescue Mission.

Oltmans is, once again, eager to continue its support of the Rescue Mission and its efforts, with the same hope of bettering those in our community. I hope that you will consider joining us.

The project’s scope is to expand the existing Veterans Outpost by implementing a complete interior, exterior, and mechanical systems remodel of three (3) existing apartment buildings, located on Newport Avenue in Tustin, CA. Growing the Veterans Outpost from two buildings to five will allow an additional 45 veterans to benefit from housing and Rescue Mission support.

We are currently seeking any DONATIONS, MATERIALS, OR LABOR SERVICES to complete this project.

Major trades that would greatly benefit the project include:

  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Mechanical
  • Handrails/Welding
  • Masonry/Block Walls
  • Cabinets/Countertops
  • Flooring
  • Doors/Frames/Hardware
  • Flatwork
  • Painting
  • Asphalt
  • Windows

Oltmans Construction will be personally contributing to this project – our donated services will include general labor and concrete services. We urge you to join us and lend your assistance and expertise to this great cause.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, and we wish you a happy New Year!
