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 exponential growth in our 5 years of operation because of our dedication to our mission: "To Eliminate Homelessness Among Veterans in Central Florida"
We currently manage 4 programs to support the homeless veterans: Search and Rescue, Stand Down, Seasonal Support, and Transitional Housing.
- 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
- Stand Down - 1 day event that provides free hot meals, medical/dental care, legal services, showers, haircuts, access to dozens of service providers, benefits processing, etc... for an average of 200 homeless vets annually
- Seasonal Support -Morale improvement program. Provide hotel rooms to homeless vets during inclement weather, distribute hot holiday meals to the field, provide an average of 60 homeless veterans free hotels for Christmas Eve/Day with presents (outdoor gear, grocery gift cards)/meals included, etc..
- Transitional Housing - Newly formed program, transitional and emergency housing program capable of housing up to 16 homeless veterans at any given point in time
Volunteers are needed for every aspect of the company, from administration to field outreach, we welcome all the help we can receive. Come join an organization that is changing lives everyday!
