Vital Resources for Homeless Veterans Looking for Help

Homeless veteran

Our veterans fight on the battlefield, but for many, a new fight awaits back home. Transitioning from military to civilian life is different for all veterans. Some do it easily and others struggle with homelessness and substance abuse. It’s a national shame that even one veteran is homeless. Fortunately, there are many groups and resources for homeless veterans that can help them get off the streets.

Volunteers of America

Founded in 1896, Volunteers of America is dedicated to help those “who shall have born the battle”. Their services help over 10,000 veterans whether they just got back home from overseas or have struggled with civilian life for years. A variety of services help veterans with homelessness, substance abuse, mental health issues, unemployment, and suicide prevention. The ultimate goal of VOA is to get our veterans into permanent homes.

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans

The NCHV is a non-profit organization that acts as liaison between care providers and government agencies charged with helping. They are an advocacy group that helped write the Homeless Veterans Comprehensive Assistance Act of 2001. Their continued mission is to “help veterans regain control of their lives and the enjoy the freedoms they helped preserve.”

The Salvation Army

Since 1865, The Salvation Army has helped people around the world by “doing the most good”. Their faith-based programs help veterans by giving them a place to stay and helping them overcome PTSD or drug and alcohol problems. Their Adult Recovery centers have work programs to help vets get back on their feet and back into civilian life as easily as possible.

Disabled American Veterans

DAV is a non-profit charity dedicated to helping disabled veterans lead quality lives with respect and dignity. They provide free professional assistance to vets and their families, so they can get the benefits and services they earned through their service to the country. Every year, they provide over 600,000 rides to medical appointments and help with over 200,000 benefit claims.

U.S. Vets

Harry Pregerson, a federal judge and WWII veteran, saw a need to help the veterans of this country. He and other influential people in Los Angeles collaborated to create the U.S. Vets in 1993. Their motto is “Serving those who served” and they house and help thousands of homeless veterans every year. Their support network offers career development, counseling, family services, and help in securing permanent housing.
