Charting impact

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

The primary focus of Kline Veterans Fund is to provide emergency assistance to those veteran families who are experiencing homelessness or who are in imminent risk of losing their homes.

We provide funding to support housing stabilization for Veterans and their families in three programs; help for indigent Veterans, participation in HUD1 leveraged housing and supportive services for Veterans who are transitioning back into civil society and dedicated space for female Veterans and their children in a supportive shelter environment.

Our Board of Directors is comprised 100% of Veterans who provide unique peer to peer connection and support for our clients. Our community partners and partner VSO's work together to ensure local Veterans have access to the services and programs they need.
