What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Military Outreach USA has a formal partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs to serve Veterans who are exiting homelessness, at risk of becoming homeless or who are homeless. When a Veteran exists homelessness they need basic move in essentials to set up their new residence as well as furnishings to include a bed. There are thousands of formerly homeless Veterans who need beds, clothing and basic essentials in their transition out of homelessness. Through donations and awareness campaigns we strive to serve those men and women. Additional support is needed for families who are providing care to our physically and mentally wounded Veterans. In working with VA medical facilities and through our local partners we provide programs to help these families as they fill the role of caregiver. There are more than 2 million military caregivers in the U.S. with almost half serving post 9/11 Veterans. More than 30% of them have no support network.

Adopt-a-Caregiver

Designed to reach the more than 5 million Military Caregivers in the U.S., Military Outreach USA is pleased to announce a new program in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs that gives you the opportunity to help support our nation's military caregivers.



Military Outreach USA, working with the Veterans Administration and other organizations, has developed the Adopt-a-Caregiver initiative to create awareness and provide the information you need to support those who care for our nation’s wounded.

Population(s) Served

Serving more than 156 VA Medical Facilities, Adopt-a-VA is a community-based initiative where houses of worship, businesses and organizations partner with their local VA facility to serve the needs of local Veterans.

It provides to those who want to do more than say,"Thanks for your service", the channel to use their own professional experience, expertise and resources to respond to the needs of local Veterans in a wide variety of fields: providing donations, employment opportunities, recreation, arts, community service and a host of other areas which collectively make up the communities in which we live.

Population(s) Served

Moral injury is an invisible wound of war that can also affect those in other professions.

Military Outreach USA provides a variety of resources and programs to be used in working with those who suffer from a moral injury. Use the resources and programs on this page to enhance and expand existing knowledge of this and other issues affecting those who have served us.

Population(s) Served

When a Veteran exits homelessness they often do not have all the Move-in-Essentials needed to set up their new residence.

One of the most needed of those essentials is a bed.

Military Outreach USA created the Beds for Vets program to provide to Veterans and their families who are existing homelessness a bed to sleep in. Beds are requested by VA caseworkers and then delivered to a VA facility and given to qualified Veterans or delivered to a Veteran's residence FREE of charge.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through our programs in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, Military Outreach USA has the goal of providing through our partners to our Veterans and military community the resources they need to lead full and productive lives. Our caring partners, comprised of houses of worship, businesses, individuals and civic groups work in conjunction with local VA medical facilities to serve qualified Veterans and their families.

When a Veteran exists homelessness they have little to bring to their new residence. Through our Adopt-a-VA program we seek to fill that need with basic essentials and furnishings to include a bed. Through the Adopt-a-Caregiver Program we identify those within a community who can provide a support network.

We also are expanding and developing resources for those impacted by Moral Injury. Through an understanding of this invisible wound of war we seek to create more awareness and and understanding of how to treat those suffering form this wound.

We have three simple strategies:

ENGAGING with our partners to collect move-in-essential items, clothing, food and more to be brought to VA facilities for distribution to qualified Veterans in need. Military Outreach USA actively engages with our partners to help those in the Military Community overcome the invisible wounds of war including Moral Injury. By engaging in a holistic approach to working with our partners the Military Community is served.

CARING-We partner, resource and empower our partners through training, mentoring and coaching so they can enhance their presence in their communities. By learning about the various resources and tools available our partners can best care for all the needs of those who have served. Our partners serve through their caring.

PARTNERING in a formal agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs we and our community partners can work closely with every VA medical facility to ensure Veterans at the local level are being served.

Military Outreach USA has partners throughout the nation who actively work with us to serve Veterans and their families at the local level. We need to continue expanding that partnership base to ensure that every VA facility and in turn Veteran and family will be served. We have established needs lists provided to us by VA facilities that are then shared with local partners who can, when feasible, meet those needs.

Future staffing will be needed to develop further our partnership base as the needs of Veterans and their families is increasing particularly in the area of caregiver support. We are heavily reliant on technology to communicate with current and prospective partners. In communicating with our partners we actively engage them through social media, video conferencing, email newsletters and campaigns.

Free monthly webinars cover a range of topics from Military Culture to Suicide Awareness and Prevention. Webinars educate, create awareness and provide resources.

Since the formalization of our programs with the Department of Veterans Affairs Military Outreach USA and its partners have provided more than 900,000 basic move in essentials valued at more than $1.8 million. We have provided FREE of charge to formerly homeless Veterans more than 1,100 beds. We have served through our programs more than 35,000 Veterans and their families.

With continued support we will serve those in our military community through our existing programs and implement new ones which will include Horticultural Therapy and Community Gardens. These initiatives have proven to be successful therapeutic programs internationally and will be formalized to fit within the VA structure to meet the needs of our military caregivers, Veterans and their families.

Continuing research is also needed on the invisible wound of war known as Moral Injury. Materials are provided at no charge on all programs and resources we develop for those who suffer from this invisible wound of war.
