The mission of Calvary House is to provide support to formerly deployed military men and women as they re-enter the community, as well as the families of deployed and returning soldiers by providing services that are consistently available, accessible, and responsive to the needs of individual service members, families, and groups seeking assistance. We will work within the community to contribute, facilitate, and promote awareness of the needs of our men and women in the armed services to the enrichment of all; and to provide high-quality, compassionate and comprehensive services to as many military personnel and their families as possible.
Calvary House was organized exclusively as a tax-exempt organization within the prescribed limits of §501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Specifically, Calvary House will provide support and assistance to active and inactive military personnel and their families initially in the state of Michigan , and eventually throughout the U.S. We will provide support to formerly deployed military men and women as they re-enter the community, as well as the families of deployed and returning soldiers; provide spiritual and charitable support; assist in career preparation, job search and/or educational opportunities; coordinate recreational activities for spouses and children of deployed soldiers; and raise funds and awareness to counter the mounting number of war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, shell shock, combat fatigue, military sexual trauma, and other emotional conditions.
Would you recommend Calvary House Veteran Support/Mt. Olive Multicultural Church?
Great group with a noble cause. It's very much a program a veteran or a loved one of a veteran would endosre. Best part about it is that anyone who has even a casual interest in the military can come aboard and do something.

In response to the review below, we are working with Veterans and their families, which includes children of all ages, who have already suffered in many ways. All of our volunteers must be able to pass criminal clearances, and must be mentally stable. We cannot risk having our clients exposed to those who are being treated medically and chemically for severe mental/emotional illnesses.
Additionally, we have a very clear and concise plan for each of our programs and have been successful in implementing and carrying out each of our current program offerings.
I love what they're trying to do, but when I went in to offer my assistance, they had nothing for me to help out in. It was a lot of, "we want to do this, but it's for down the road" and, "we plan on this, but don't know yet how we're going to go about it". I understand they're "new", but why post volunteer opportunities if there's nothing to help with in those certain areas? And then to never call and tell me as much...?
Super nice people; wonderful, wonderful organization... It just wasn't a match.
