Housing, Shelter


Never forget that Freedom is NOT Free

aka Kline Veterans Fund

Las Vegas, NV


We are dedicated to providing a warm and safe refuge for homeless Veterans and their families in the Las Vegas valley. We fund shelter, meals, and bus passes. Starting in 2015, we participate in a program of leveraged subsidized, Veteran supportive services and housing to enhance re-integration into the civilian society for honorably discharged Veterans and their families.

Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We cooperate with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in achieving the goal of the VA to end Veteran homelessness by the end of 2015.

We provide temporary housing to Veterans and their families while in the Las Vegas Valley seeking VA assistance.

We are an all volunteer organization. We have no paid employees. All funds raised with the exception of some very minor overhead costs are applied to providing shelter, food and transportation. The need is well more than we can accommodate and therefore our goal is to provide more shelter as the funds become available.

As we have no contact with the recipients of our largess, we are dependent on the VA to inform us of how our help has impacted the Veterans. We are told that we are nearly 100% effective in helping these Veterans re-assimilate into the working civilian population.

The intended result of our project is to temporarily support homeless Veterans and their families in the Las Vegas area. It is hoped that providing housing, food and transportation will accelerate these Veterans’ and their families’ assimilation into the civilian population. We have assisted over 2,800 Veterans and families since the program started.
