Our commitment: We don't leave our wounded behind.
There should not be a single homeless veteran in America.
But in Milwaukee alone, one of every four homeless persons is a veteran. There are 300 to 400 homeless veterans on any given day. Over the course of a year, there are four times that many who are homeless for a time. An additional 5,500 local veterans are classified as at risk, because they are living below the poverty line or spending more than half of their incomes on housing.
Those are the people we have served since 2008 -- more than 900 veterans and their families. Some of what we do seeks out and helps those who are currently homeless. Some of our work is homelessness prevention, to help those who are only one misfortune away from losing their homes. They could slip into homelessness without the support they receive from us and others.
Our programs grow, change, and adapt to meet their needs.
Those veterans need our help -- and they deserve it.
