During Veterans Day week 2011, over 160 community volunteers canvassed the streets and shelters of Phoenix to identify and survey Veterans experiencing homelessness. 216 Veterans were surveyed - 7 percent served in Iraq or Afghanistan, up from 3.2 percent last year. 52 percent have an acute medical condition. We can do better by these men and women that served our country bravely. We need your HELP to bring these Veterans HOME.
Working in partnership with the Phoenix VA, Phoenix Housing Department and Arizona Department of Veterans Services, we will assist 90 of the most vulnerable of these Veterans in securing permanent, safe and affordable housing with wrap-around supportive services. We need your help to make this housing a HOME for these Veterans.
Your donation will help us secure furniture, household items, groceries and other necessities for these Veterans as they move into their new homes in the coming weeks and months. Please help us give back to these men and women that served us.
Ways you can help. Support a Veteran.
