You Can Help Lots of Veterans In Many Ways By Donating
Can you imagine…
Going to war to protect our way of life?
Losing your arms or legs because of an IED explosion?
An IED explosion jolts your brain so hard that you get a Traumatic Brain Injury?
The haunting memory of a little girl walking toward you, trying to tell you that her mommy strapped a bomb to her, then she blows up?
Then you come home to…
Find out that, even though you lost your arms or legs, it’s not considered a combat injury. According to the government, you were not in a combat zone. Therefore, you get No Prosthetics and No Benefits. You do not qualify.
Many tests and doctor’s appointments just to get a diagnosis. With 2-6 months in between every appointment and test, taking years for your diagnosis.
The inability to get a job because all you have are military skills. You can’t pay your bills, feed your family or yourself.
Homeless with injuries
Living on the streets, ignored by the government and the very people you fought for.
Abused by the predators on the streets.
Herd like cattle, to constantly move, because city ordinances don’t allow you to sit, stand or sleep in public areas.
The #1 Crisis in America
94.5% of Veterans are In Crisis!
There are a total of 24,000,000 Veterans.
Here’s what our Veterans are going through today…
2,900,000 Injured since 9/11
1,200,000 No VA Benefits
7,700,000 Have PTSD
1,400,000 Have TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)
22,680,513 Veterans In Crisis!
The majority of homeless Veterans are in large metropolitan areas. Due to city loitering ordinances, the Veterans are herd like cattle to continuously move. And newly enacted nationwide city ordinances, now ban the feeding of homeless people in the streets or any public area. Yes, you can be fined and get up to 1 year in jail, for feeding a homeless person in any public area!
How would it feel to be able to walk up to a homeless Veteran and say “I’m going to change your life!”? As tears roll down their face and he says “Thank you for your kindness!” And he looks at his family and says “Everything’s going to be ok! This kind person is going to help us!” Then suddenly his children run up to you and wrap their arms around your legs, look up at you and say “Thank You!”
Our programs are very important to Veterans. We provide personalized care for each Veteran in need.
The annual point-in-time count reports:
65,000 Homeless Veterans in 2012
55,000 Homeless Veterans in 2013
50,000 Homeless Veterans in 2014
48,000 Homeless Veterans in 2015
Government wide efforts to help homeless Veterans, through the distribution of 2,000 HUD-VASH vouchers, have only pulled 2,000 individuals off the streets in 2015. In September 2016 only 2,000 more HUD-VASH vouchers were released. Leaving 46,000 Homeless Veterans to fend for themselves.
We have created a unique One-of-a-kind Program for Veterans, called “The Barracks”. A military style transitional housing complex. Rescuing 100 Veterans at a time. This familiar environment brings back Discipline, Order and Organization to Veterans lives. Creating a sense of dignity and self-worth.
“The Barracks” programs provide…
3 meals a day.
A bed to sleep in.
Advanced Regenerative Medical Treatments.
Move-in ready homes, fully stocked with food.
Our programs give the Veterans a familiar safe haven, prosthetics and curative medical treatments, while they acquire the necessary skills to take the journey down the Stepping Stones To A New Beginning.

Anyone Can Be A Volunteer
Transforming Veterans Lives
When you help us prepare nutritional meals in the our kitchens. Or when you deliver food, water, blankets and clothing to needy Veterans and their families. Or when you help us collect food, blankets, clothing and toiletries. You will encounter many Veterans with tearful smiling faces. Tears of happiness, knowing that you really do care. Join us in the battle against Veterans hunger.
When we have an empty lot and you help us build a home or multi unit complex from the ground up. Or when you help us renovate a home. Or when you help us furnish a home. You are not just putting a roof over the Veterans head. You are giving the Veteran a bed to sleep in, a shower to bath in, a kitchen to cook in, a table to eat at and a sofa to relax on. We are giving our “Invisible Americans”, our Veterans, back their lives with the opportunity to succeed by building a solid foundation for the Veteran’s future. Join us to build a future for our Veterans.
