Colonel Robert L. Howard State Veterans Home


The Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs (ADVA) owns and governs the Colonel Robert L. Howard State Veterans Home, located in Pell City, AL. This 254 bed facility features skilled care, memory care, and domiciliary care all arranged in a “small house” or neighborhood setting.  A large town center with a stone fireplace brings an instant feeling of warmth and community. Veterans love to gather in the “Stars and Stripes Café” to share a beverage and catch a ball game.  Located over an hour outside of Birmingham, this is the most recent and modern State Veteran Home built by the ADVA and US Department of Veterans Affairs in Alabama.

The Colonel Robert L. Howard State Veteran Home is managed by HMR of Alabama, Inc. on behalf of the ADVA. HMR Veterans Services, Inc. has proudly provided management services to HMR of Alabama, Inc. since facility construction was completed in 2012.
