We prioritize our efforts to provide for single mothers first, followed by single fathers, single women, couples and single men. Keeping families together and women and children off the streets is foremost in all efforts. Gaining permanent housing and keeping Veterans working are areas of focus. We have an application process that thoroughly reviews the requester’s finances, expenses, extenuating circumstances and whether our short term support will result in long term solutions. Most requests come with a letter of support from a VA Social Worker or a Veterans Advocate.
Our accomplishments have increased exponentially over the past three years, due to the unconditional support we have received from the community, corporations and foundations. We have an annual operating budget that provides over $86,000 in direct financial support to over 200 Veterans, Active Service Members and their families.
