A 2015 study by Yale University and the VA noted that Veterans have a higher risk of homelessness than civilians. According to PolicyAdvice.net, “around 60,000 Veterans are sleeping on the streets due to homelessness.” PolicyAdvice further reports, “An estimated 1.4 million Veterans are at risk of homelessness in the US.” Like civilian counterparts, PTSD, social isolation, unemployment, and substance abuse leads to homelessness.

About the Homeless-to-Home Program
When you went into the military, you were sent to boot camp to learn how to be a Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Airman, or Coastie. When you got out, you were cut loose to make it on your own. We’ve learned that many Veterans aren’t prepared for their new reality. Therefore, we’ll put you back in boot camp, but this time to learn the things you need to know to successfully manage and live in your own home. This program includes the following training programs that lead to esteem building certifications.
- Menu planning
- Shopping for your menu
- Hygiene (personal and spatial)
- and, more
Show your support for our Veterans who need your help by making a tax deductible donation.
We understand that many issues can lead to homelessness for Veterans and First Responders. Therefore, we have developed programs to help with mental health and employment. Learn more about these programs n the following pages.
