Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

At the present time I have 9 Veterans in need of Regenerative medical treatments in order to regain use of their arms and legs. Which also eliminates pain, thereby, eliminating pharmaceutical drugs. That means no risk of addiction. There's still over 42,000 homeless Veterans in the US and 1.2 million Veterans are still At-Risk-Of-Homelessness due to the continuous rise in rental rates. We have helped 155 Veterans this year. We want to make a much bigger impact but we cannot do it without you. We need your help in raising the funds to continue our mission.
