About

No One Left Behind is seeking Housing Team members for the San Francisco East Bay Chapter

No One Left Behind is the only veteran-run and veteran focused organization serving combat interpreters and combat support personnel who were forced to leave their homes in Iraq and Afghanistan due to being threatened by ISIS/the Taliban for working for the US military. These refugees who risked their lives and those of their families for our troops arrive in the US with few funds, no household goods, and a confusing array of governmental agencies with which to deal. Our mission is to provide them with the support to start a successful life.

No One Left Behind has a guiding principle that everyone who served with or supported our military should be able to have safe, clean, pest-free housing in the United States. In the Bay area, we do not routinely provide housing, but in the emergency situations when our clientele needs assistance finding housing, it tends to be very challenging due to the San Francisco Area housing situation. Housing assistants will check local listings, known landlords, and internet resources when a client family has urgent housing needs. Other possible activities would be to assist client families in applying for low-income housing, and monitoring responses to rent assistance requests.
