There should not be a single homeless veteran in America.
But in Milwaukee, one of every four homeless persons is a veteran, and 300 to 400 veterans are homeless on any given day. Over the course of a year, four times that many are homeless for a time. An additional 5,500 local veterans are classified as at risk, because they are living below the poverty line, spending more than half of their incomes on housing, or living with another family.Those are the people we have served since 2008 -- more than 1,000 veterans and their families. We seek out and help those who are currently homeless. We also do 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.
Please take a few minutes to explore this website and learn about what we do. Then, if you'd like to get involved, please contact us to volunteer, sign up for our newsletter, make a donation, or drop by our new headquarters and volunteer center at 7222 W. Fond du Lac Ave. to get acquainted and see what we do firsthand.
The need is great, and growing. The veterans we serve would welcome your help.
