Homeward Vets, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps to provide home furnishings to previously homeless Veterans who are transitioning into permanent housing. We rely solely on private / commercial contributions and donations of furniture to help us succeed in this mission and are not funded in any part by the government. All donations are tax-deductible to the furthest extent of the law.
The Veterans we serve have been chronically homeless and range from single men/women to families with children. Most of these Veterans are able to get vouchers or subsidies through various federally funded programs to live in permanent housing, and being able to find a place to call “home” is a huge accomplishment in it’s own, but the Veterans are only given the keys, and in almost all cases, move into an empty apartment without even the basic necessities.
Homeward Vets, Inc. is working with the various case workers assigned to the hundreds of Veterans currently homeless. Understanding the major transition they are experiencing, we gather new/used items to help make the homes a more livable environment and adding that extra step to keep these Veterans from going into remission and back on the streets. We have began reaching out to other areas within the state and will continue to reach as many areas as we can to help the many Veterans that are in need of this service.
