Veterans Services

Since World War I, Volunteers of America has provided direct services to veterans and connected them to other organizations that can help. We are committed to ending homelessness for those veterans on the street and preventing others from becoming homeless by providing a wide array of well-designed and managed services to meet the specific needs of veterans. Our support helps veterans overcome the barriers that stand between them and a stable, successful life.
