Charting impact

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

To identify those individuals that are at risk of becoming homeless and providing them with financial assistance, employment opportunities, clothing and food. To identify those who may be suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Alcohol, Drug and Gambling addition, referring and assisting them into programs where they can receive help for these problems. Our hope is to assist the individuals in becoming productive citizens.

We work closely with the Veterans Administration Social Workers who refer veterans and their families to our office for a variety of assistance. We also work on the streets interviewing homeless and assisting them with housing and food. We refer some veterans and widows to our benefits office where they receive assistance in obtaining medical care and disability compensation from the Veterans Administration. We work closely with local employment agencies and other businesses to obtain employment for our veterans.

We are an all-volunteer based organization dedicated to helping our veterans, their families and widows. We provide financial aid as needed. We have two storage units dedicated to collecting and distributing food and hygiene products. We have a storage unit dedicated to our clothing program. We have a Veterans Benefit Office located at the Veterans Administration Hospital. We have food and clothing drives throughout the year to replenish our food and clothing banks. We also have fundraisers, private donations and grants to finance our programs.

Our homeless veteran population has decreased dramatically due to our untiring efforts. We know that we will never completely have zero homeless. Our goal is to work closely with the Veterans Administration and other organizations in our community identifying new arrivals and assisting them where needed.
