The Anand-Martin Foundation seeks to provide housing solutions for low income individuals, families, and veterans:
? Procure or obtain local properties, homes, and facilities such as hotels to renovate for low-income housing
The Anand-Martin Foundation seeks to open the doors once unavailable to many of Chattanooga’s residents and veterans. With compassion and understanding we seek to serve our neighbors through housing, empowerment, advocacy, and outreach.
The Housing Choice voucher program, formerly called Section 8, is a federally funded program that allows low-income tenants to pay only 30 percent of their income for rent while the housing authority issues payment vouchers to landlords that pay the remainder. Chattanooga's working families cannot find the affordable housing they need, and something must be done about it.11 April 2015

Chattanooga Mayer Andy Berke said:
"These men and women have served our country valiantly, and it’s time we take care of them. Veteran homelessness is a problem across the country. But I look at the greatness of our city and know we can do better. We will work together—businesses, community members, governmental organizations and those who’ve served our country—to ensure no veteran is forced to live on the streets, or in the parking garages, of Chattanooga, Tennessee." June 4, 2014
First Lady Michelle Obama said:
"So that’s why, as President, my husband has vowed not to simply manage this problem, but to end it. That’s why he’s made this issue a government-wide priority. He’s cut through red tape for our veterans. He’s directed record funding and resources to get them into housing. And overall, since 2010, we’ve housed nearly 230,000 veterans and their families. (Applause.) We’ve done this through our targeted housing vouchers and the VA homelessness programs."
Founder/Chairman, Sushan "Sonny" Anand said:
"I would like the Anand-Martin Foundation to be known for compassion, trust, and fruitfulness. The purpose of living is not only to take care of yourself, but also to help people who are stuggling to make themselves better and trying to do the right thing."
