Veteran Academy-YAO will assist you with housing and saving for the future.

YAO believes that one of the best ways to create change is to help young Americans get a global education and a positive career.


YAO connects clients to low-cost living accommodations

&  resources to enable professional success.


YAO clients can spend their time concentrating on their education and career instead of thinking about bills.


YAO assists with housing accommodations for male and female veterans from all branches. YAO is the first & only veteran focused housing complex in Jefferson county.

"Our goal is to help veterans, students and professionals gain an education and a great career."
