ABOUT US

A HAND UP NOT A HANDOUT

After serving our country, our military veterans often return home from their service without a home or are at risk of losing their homes.

So, Many homeless veterans are in need a hand-up, not a handout.

Because these veterans have no permanent place to live, tonight, in the United States, 226,200 will sleep on the street, in abandoned buildings, and in places unfit for human habitation.

VAlanthropy Vision

To reduce homelessness for ignored veterans by creating desirable, affordable permanent residences for homeless veterans and those about to become homeless.

VAlanthropy Mission
