National Veterans Homeless Support


Individuals needed to provide active outreach at local food banks and shelters, and to search for homeless Veterans in wooded areas. Our purpose is to locate the Veterans and provide them with information, hygiene kits, food, and other supplies. Over time we build relationships with the Veterans, which helps us gain their trust, and ultimately, get them into housing.

Mission Statement

To Eliminate Homelessness among Veterans In Central Florida


NVHS was formed by veterans for the sole purpose of locating and assisting the estimated 4,500 homeless veterans living in the parks, forests, and streets of Central Florida. We are a relatively small organization, but have seen consistent growth in our 12 years of operation because of our dedication to our mission, which resulted in a whopping 88% reduction in the homeless veteran population of Brevard County, Florida!

We currently manage 3 programs to support the homeless veterans: Search and Rescue, Transitional Housing, and PTSA.

  1. Search and Rescue - Primary program of NVHS, we search for homeless veterans in the forests and parks, provide outdoor gear and food once we find them in order to alleviate the burdens of homeless life, and help with housing, benefits, and employment to get them out of the woods and back on their feet again... for an average of 200 homeless vets annually
  2. Transitional Housing - Newly formed program, transitional and emergency housing program capable of housing up to 16 homeless veterans at any given point in time... for an average of 22 veterans annually
  3. The NVHS PTSA program was designed to create and offer post-traumatic stress Awareness, Action, and Anonymity to those who may be dealing with PTSD, as well as provide more information and education about PTSD to the overall community.

Volunteers are needed and we welcome all the help we can receive. Come join an organization that is changing lives everyday!
