Description

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 194,254 veterans are homeless on any given night.


Forty-seven percent of homeless veterans are Vietnam-era veterans, but there are also World War II and Korean Conflict veterans along with those from both Iraq wars and Afghanistan living on the streets.


Only 11 percent of the total U.S. population can claim veteran status, but they account for 25 percent of all homeless people, and one in three homeless men is a veteran.


Our outreach program is designed to help veterans of all discharge statuses who are in need of basic shelter and services.


We are a place for all community outreach programs to focus on the homeless veteran.


Donations to our organization impact the lives of homeless veterans by delivering shelter to those men and women who, for whatever reason, have found themselves broken and homeless. Please give generously. They need it. Many hands make light work. Even a small donation given on a monthly basis will help thousands of veterans find a place called home.


We encourage everyone to perform an act of kindness towards a veteran wherever they may be found and whenever possible. In this way, a cycle of compassion and goodwill continues to grow toward those who have fought for our freedoms indefinitely.


Do you have a heart to volunteer for veterans? We are always looking for and accepting the spirit of great volunteers.


You will find that in reaching out to our homeless veterans and impacting them through respectfully bringing them to shelter, you are repairing a part of the fabric of our country, our heritage, our united dreams of prosperity. If you are blessed enough to be able to contribute financially, your gifts will find their way to providing warm shelter for the vets who need our help on our streets.
