It only takes $25 to provide a woman Veteran and her children with safe and suitable housing. Final Salute Inc. is appreciative of every donation it receives, because every donation, whether small or grand, will go towards assisting a homeless woman Veteran in need. Many do not know this but I was a homeless Vet for about 4-5mo while transitioning to the civilian world. It was hard being clear accross the country from any family member or family friend. I've been in these womens shoes and it either makes or breaks you. Im blessed beyond words to have met an incredibly amazing woman that went to a school I was just looking into at the time. She changed my life.
The purpose of this event is not only to honor the service and sacrifice women Vets have made to this great nation, but to also support our Sisters-in-Arms who are transitioning from the military or have transitioned to civilian employment and may need an image boost.
The H.O.M.E Program provides transitional housing, on-site case management, food, clothing, transportation, child care subsidy/assistance, employment support and other essential supportive services to homeless women Veterans and their children. The H.O.M.E Program focuses on integrating women Veterans back into their local communities and providing vast, safe and suitable residential areas to choose from. Our H.O.M.E Program is a collaboration with our resource partners that includes targeted supportive services to assist women Veterans in reaching their goals. Although based in the DC Metro Area, our programs have assisted women Veterans and children in over 30 States and Territories. We also assist with permanent placement once Veterans are ready to transition from our residential facilities.
