Veterans make up 8% of the homeless population in the U.S.
Homelessness, PTSD, self-medication, and addiction have caused those who gave everything to lose everything.
We offer a home to those who have protected ours. Whenever a veteran doesn't have any place to go, it's an honor to give them a place to rest their head, a hot meal, help finding employment, and a fresh start.
Those who fought to protect us often find themselves battling PTSD and drug and alcohol addiction after returning home. At our Adult Rehabilitation Centers, we offer faith-based recovery and work programs in addition to other veteran services to help our country's bravest overcome these struggles and return home to their families.
Veterans often find themselves battling loneliness and depression years after returning home. The Salvation Army is committed to standing beside those who stood up for us by offering a variety of veteran services to meet their needs. Whether it's phone cards to call home, wheelchair assistance, large-print Bibles, or a friendly smile and companionship for the afternoon, we're always ready to come to their aid.
