Each month, Cinnaire’s Advancing Communities Podcast brings together our Chief Strategy Officer Jim Peffley with thought leaders, policy makers and others who are making an impact in the community development and affordable housing industries. Our guests share their experiences and perspective on a range of topics, each supporting the belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.
In this episode, Jim sits down with Tim Hunnicutt, founder and CEO of Zero Day, a non-profit organization providing housing and critical supportive services for struggling veterans. Tim shares the story of Zero Day and the role housing, job training and therapeutic services play in transitioning military veterans into a healthy and productive civilian life. Through Zero Day, Tim has served hundreds of returning veterans. Tim also shares his work with Cinnaire to develop Silver Star Apartments, an affordable living community providing housing and support services to veterans in Battle Creek, MI. The development was the first affordable housing community for veterans in Michigan and has become a model for affordable veterans housing nationwide.
