The goal of Veterans Non Profit is to be a one stop shop of basic needs for our local veterans and they are needing our help more now than ever. Many of them are faced with struggles when they transition to civilian life and we want to be here to help as much as we can. We help an average of 250 households a month and we support each of them for just $20 a month! This is due to our amazing volunteer support and donors that help us keep things running!
We know that many of them have families which is why we also help them as a household. Those services we are able to provide are our food pantry and clothing closet. Each member of the family can recieve two full outfits a month to include a pair of shoes and they also have access to basic hygiene items. We also recieve furniture, household items, toys, etc. that they can take as needed.
For the veteran we offer further services to help them after they leave th service or to get back on their feet. We have a seperate area of our clothing closet specifically for interview clothes. If they need it, we help them work on their resumes or apply for jobs. Some of our veterans have service animals that we are also able to help supply pet food for.
Past our foundation of services, we try to continue to identify needs and help where we can. There are peer to peer support groups, housing help, benefits help, bus passes, free haircuts and more!
These difficut times have created unique challenges for us and right now we could use some extra help to keep these services available. We truly enjoy getting to help our veterans and would greatly appreciate any help to continue making their lives just a little bit easier!
