Homeland Homeless

Helping Those Who Helped You!

When many young men and women join the military during wartime, they are never the same when they return.  After fighting for their country, they come home somewhat disillusioned by the circumstances that confront them.  They are unable to secure employment, housing, and other basic necessities of life.  This has often caused many veterans to retreat into depression.  As a result of not being able to adequately function in society, they resort to drugs believing that this will solve their problems.  Unfortunately, this only leads them down a path of further destruction.

Homeland Homeless is dedicated to reach beyond the immediate needs by providing veterans with many necessary and critical life essentials.  In our effort to reintegrate these veterans into society, our organization will provide the following: transitional housing, vocational training, job placement, psychological evaluation, counseling, legal assistance, substance abuse treatment, health care, and comprehensive case management.

Homeland Homeless, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides services to homeless and disabled veterans. Veterans receive free food, clothing, and other necessary hygiene essentials. Veterans receive a step-by-step process of the requirements needed to receive eligible benefits.  Veterans are also referred to agencies within and outside the Veterans' Administration that can assist them in their transitional process.

Homeland Homeless also provides assistance to children of veterans and the organization recently sponsored two student athletes at the Junior Olympics. The ultimate goal of the organization is to sponsor educational programs designed to assist students with scholarship opportunities.

Additionally, the organization is a member of the Stand Down Program.  Stand Downs are one part of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ efforts to provide services to homeless veterans.  Stand Downs are typically one to three day events.  During these events, veterans receive services, such as, food, shelter, clothing, and health screenings.  The veterans are also given information regarding housing, VA & Social Security benefits, employment, and substance abuse.  Stand Downs are a collaborative event, coordinated between local veterans' agencies, other government agencies, and community agencies who serve the homeless.

" It is the Soldier, not the minister Who has given us freedom of religion. It is the Soldier, not the reporter Who has given us freedom of the press. It is the Soldier, not the poet Who has given us freedom of speech. It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer Who has given us freedom to protest. It is the Soldier, not the lawyer Who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the Soldier, not the politician Who has given us the right to vote. It is the Soldier who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag....”
