About

This opportunity is for Monday mornings from 7-10am, in Merritt Island. We are looking to develop a team to help locate homeless Veterans and low income veterans. We provide veterans with VA and housing information, hygiene kits, food, and other supplies necessary to get them connected with the VA for benefits and housing. Over time we build relationships with the Veterans, which helps us gain their trust, and ultimately, get them out of the woods and into housing. Mission Statement: "To Eliminate Homelessness Among Veterans In Central Florida".

Additional duties may include assisting our team with the following tasks; drivers for our U-Haul truck to pick up and drop off supplies/donations for storage and distribution, active outreach at local food banks and shelters, camp inspections and garbage coordination with Waste Management, and Search and Rescue personnel to search for homeless Veterans in wooded areas.
