The San Francisco Bay Area isn’t just where we do business – it’s our home. Since 2007, we has embraced our foundational commitment to be a good neighbor and global citizen. This means giving back to the colorful, diverse neighborhoods we live and work in, and supporting organizations that make a positive change in our global community.
A Place to Call Home.
We believe that an apartment is more than a roof over your head; it’s a place to call home. Having a comfortable, secure and convenient place to call home is at the essence of Ronald McDonald House Charities. This national non-profit organization offers short and long-term housing for families whose children are receiving lifesaving medical care. RMHC provides families with basic needs and support while their child is being treated, allowing them to focus on the healing, care and rehabilitation for their child.
When the need for housing outpaced the capacity, coupled with closures due to COVID, Veritas partnered with the teams at RMHC and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland to provide free housing for families.
Since 2020, Veritas has donated more than 1,500 nights of housing to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
RMHC recently purchased a partially renovated home directly across the street from the Oakland Children’s Hospital. This home will specifically benefit families with children who have undergone bone marrow transplants. These medical treatments require a 3-month stay in close proximity to the doctors and hospital.
On behalf of the GreenTree residents and community, Veritas made a donation to RMHC to help fund renovations to make this new home accessible for wheelchairs. Our teams got a behind the scenes tour of the planned upgrades.
Work began on the house in November 2022. RMHC plans to welcome its first residents in January 2023. This ABC7 news story shares the story of Sheena and Rae who stayed at one of our apartments in San Francisco earlier this year.
