You can help save Veterans from homelessness and starvation.
Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country – John F. Kennedy
In January of 2018, close to 38,000 veterans were homeless (HUD, Nov. 1, 2019). These are the same individuals who answered the call to duty during our nation’s most threatening times; and yet, they are living without even the most basic of human needs. They have fought in many wars, and today, they are without a place to call home.
There are several factors that can cause a veteran to either become or come close to homelessness:
- Lack of affordable housing, with housing and living costs currently on the rise
- Limited civilian jobs that are comparable with a veteran’s unique employment experience and skill set
- Living with a physical or mental disability, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Substance abuse, with some cases resulting from the physical and mental demands of deployment and war
Greater Good Charities' goal is to provide the support for those who are on the front lines helping our veterans cope with these complex issues. We are committed to causes that are both actively supporting homeless veterans as well as those committed to addressing the risk factors to prevent homelessness. Some of these include:
- Helping locate, obtain or provide safe & supportive housing
- Provide job training and employment
- Provide nutritious and consistent meals
- Provide pet and equine therapy to alleviate the effects of PTSD
