How We Serve Veterans
We see the value in every Veteran regardless of age or time in the service. Through an extensive triage process, we formulate a plan with the Veteran so they can live their best life. We emphasize client involvement, financial responsibility, and community interaction with every client.
Each of our three programs, Battle Buddy 4 Life, Veteran Strong, and Emergency Response includes wrap-around case management, services, referrals, and regular communication. By meeting all of the basic human needs of interaction, shelter, socialization, eliminating hunger, and providing hope, what starts here changes lives! Help us change lives!
A Battle Buddy is a mentor, advocate, and friend to help struggling veterans navigate benefits, find opportunities and find hope for a new day!
Every Veteran is offered the opportunity to request a Battle Buddy to ensure they know they are not forgotten. The program includes wrap-around case management, services, referrals, regular communication, and when safe, social visits. By meeting all of the basic human needs of interaction, socialization, eliminating hunger, and providing hope, together we can change the lives of Veterans everywhere.

We believe knowledge equals power, and we all need more of that in our lives, especially when we are facing a crisis.
The Veteran Strong program provides educational options for Veterans who need to understand how to manage their money, apply for benefits, seek help for mental and physical challenges, and be safe and healthy as they age. We use Pinterest to post helpful tips. Visit our page or select a specific topic link below. Pinterest is like electronic cork boards, each board is a topic, e.g. Healthy Minds, and each activity is a push pin.
Veterans can participate virtually through social media, newsletter tips, and blog posts.
If you are lucky enough to have never worried about where you will sleep and whether or not you will be able to eat, count your blessings. For many Veterans homelessness, and hunger are daily challenges. Our Emergency Response Team provides food, assistance with safe shelter, housing referrals, employment guidance, and clothing including NEW socks and undergarments for both male and female Veterans in need.
We rely on the generosity of those who can help to donate towards the "Motel Fund" which allows us to place a Veteran in a Motel for up to 3 consecutive nights until we can get them into a safe shelter or temporary housing.
Our food pantry is open and available to Veterans and their families who are facing food insecurity and need a little help to make ends meet. For more information, call us at 770-973-0014 .
