Trot for a Cot

Trot for a Cot, Birmingham Women’s Junior Chamber of Commerce is hosting a fundraiser for Three Hots and A Cot helping Alabama’s homeless veterans. Three Hots and A Cot is a 501c3 organization (TAX ID # 26-4355458) formed by veterans to help veterans. Our primary mission is to assist homeless military veterans transition to a self sustained lifestyle. Three Hots and A Cot was formed in February 2009 as a 501c3 organization to meet the needs of the Homeless Veterans in the United States. We obtained a six bedroom home in the Woodlawn area of Birmingham in March of 2010. After extensive renovations of the home – called Saint Benedict’s Veterans Center – we opened up for housing on June 15, 2010 and provided a home for 12 veterans. Currently we have renovated the home to house seven veterans to comply with space requirements of the State and Federal guidelines. In October of 2010 we took ownership of a 15 bedroom – seven bath home in the Center Point area of Birmingham.
