Ways you Can Give

We need your help to help us end Homelessness with our veterans! It takes a community effort to help these men and woman. There are several ways that you can help support our efforts. Each veteran that we assist requires intense care and a unique plan of action. Often times there are costs involved with providing these services such as costs for DMV identifications, Birth certificates, help with city fines and tickets, transportation costs to get the veteran to necessary appointments and job interviews, basic needs and necessities, medical costs etc. The cost of these are far less than the projected fees that the city gives in relation to the cost of taking care of a homeless person. We are able to provide these services and pay for these things because of the generosity of our donors. Without you we wouldn’t be able to outreach to so many. Every contribution big or small makes a difference and provides us with the resources to truly change the lives of One Veteran At A Time!
