Drive By Blessings Mission Statement: Drive By Blessings is a nonprofit organization that provides furniture and family support to Veterans, in an effort to improve their success in achieving victory over the circumstances that led them to homelessness. We believe that serving others is a way to bring healing and purpose into the lives of those who’ve been hurt and broken, and through our endeavors to help homeless Veterans, we strive to engage those Veterans, as well as, children and families, in our serving opportunities- to help build stability and strength within our Veterans and enriching the lives of those who serve them.
We fully furnish apartments for Veterans exiting homeless transitional living programs so that they have a great start in life after homelessness. We also provide them with follow up care, visits, invitations to dinners and events - most importantly, we encourage them to participate in our volunteer opportunities, serving other Veterans. Our program to continuously support them after homelessness not only ensures their victory and success, it also helps produce a sense of purpose, promotes healing, and provides them with all the physical and emotional benefits that serving others brings. Our organization and our service for Veterans we provide CAN and HAS made a direct impact in our Veterans lives - potentially ending the Veteran homelessness cycle
