Keys to Success
When Major Kevin Conley returned from Afghanistan in 2010, he had a dream. After fighting his way through the military and VA bureaucracies, he wanted to help other Veterans avoid the nightmare he was put through. He was medically retired from the U.S. Army at the age of 44 in 2014 due to his multiple medical issues incurred while on active duty. Because of his experiences and lessons learned, Kevin Conley has acquired a unique understanding of what a Veteran and his family face when returning from active duty.
The center is located at 104 South Broad Street, Middletown, DE. It is in the town center in walking distance of many town offices and businesses which could provide services and jobs. Since it is on a public bus line, transportation within the town and outlying areas is convenient. Public parking is available on the street.
The first floor of the Resiliency Center includes a multipurpose room, case managerís office, resource room, recreation room, and handicapped accessible rest room. The second and third floors have a 3-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, laundry, and 3 baths to house low income homeless male veterans.
