Milwaukee Homeless Veterans initiative

Outreach Program



We conduct early morning searches of the overnight sleeping spots of the homeless looking for veterans and working to win their trust so they will allow us to help them.  

On those early-morning rounds, we offer coffee, sandwiches, toiletries, blankets and clothing.  We also visit overnight and daytime shelters for the homeless, meal sites, and other places the homeless gather to seek out veterans who need help.

Acting as advocates and guiding them through the system, we have secured benefit claims for more than 100 veterans, and have brought many more into the Veterans Administration system to receive health care and enroll in other programs. We also provide bus tickets for people to get to appointments. Filing claims and staying with the veterans to help them through the process is something we have done from the start.
