Veteran Connection – Helping Homeless Veterans
Brief Synopsis of Veteran Connection
Veteran Connection. Inc., is a non-profit organization, 501(c)3. Our tax id # is (47-5312462). Specifically focused on the unmet needs of the homeless veteran populations in the nation; which is currently creating a substantial epidemic across the nation.
Using the “Housing First” model, we implement hope and compassion; targeting and providing the disadvantaged veterans and/or their family members with viable options for success. Team outreach missions provides the homeless clientele many options to better themselves. Options offered are resources and referrals such as: temporary to permanent housing.
Our goals are ultimately to reduce the epidemic to impact as many homeless veterans and their families as possible. We offer assistance to help the participants in recognizing their strengths from an enhanced level of cognition and awareness. There is also an aspect of the program which implements an empirical method, a preventative initiative to address and treat veteran homelessness actually before it occurs thus bridging gaps that exist in services.
