Mission Statement

To help homeless or disabled military Veterans, through the provision of transitional housing, employment assistance, substance abuse issues, and counseling services.

The Veterans in Need Foundation provides a variety of services and programs to those in need, including job assistance, drug and alcohol counseling, and free transitional housing. We like to consider the VIN foundation a stepping stone for our well deserving heroes, so they can become productive members of society once more, and live impendent lives.


Description

Approximately one out of five of the homeless population have served in the US military. Currently, as many as 200,000 are living in shelters, or are living on the streets. It is estimated that 4000,000 more veterans have experienced being homeless at some point throughout the course of a year. These Veterans will spend the night hungry and alone. There are many complicated issues affecting the current homelessness of our Veterans. There is a huge shortage of affordable housing, livable income, and access to proper health care. Many of these Veterans struggle with the long-lasting effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse, which is often combined with a lack of family and support system. Based on current reports, it's been suggested that one a service member exits the military, he or she often finds that their familiar world has since changed. They feel lost and have little or no direction. It is the goal of the VIN Foundation to provide a stepping stone to these well deserving Veterans who sacrificed their time, family, and lives for our freedom.

Veterans In Need Foundation is a 501c(3) Non-profit Organization, founded in 2009. We are a team of Veterans and Non-Veterans, whose goal is to provide support to local needy Veterans of the US armed forces. Donations collected will provide FREE temporary housing assistance for homeless Veterans.

We also offer a work program for those who are trying to improve their own lives, while also helping their homeless and disabled veterans within their community.

"They helped us... Let's help them!"
