Traditional shelters are no place for our most vulnerable veterans. In fact, it often takes weeks to find suitable shelter for those who fall into the high-risk category. This includes the elderly, those who are wheelchair bound, those battling physical ailments or mental health issues, and parents with young children. HVSD’s Emergency Fund program provides necessary, short-term assistance to our most in-need veterans while we work to secure a place for them in an appropriate program or shelter.
