Help our heroes find the homes they deserve.
Around 40,000 soldiers are currently abandoned on the streets of the United States, where some have been robbed, beaten, and even lost their lives. Often all that stands between them and a home of their own is the deposit. But as most chronically homeless veterans do not have jobs or income to cover that required cost, they remain on the streets.
There is ready housing for many of the chronically homeless veterans on our streets. Partnered with HUD and the VA, Veterans Matter's cloud-based referral system allows the veteran's VA case manager to secure a deposit for the veteran in mere minutes. Veterans Matter writes the deposit check directly to the landlord, guaranteeing a 100% success rate in moving the veteran or veteran family across the threshold and into the ready and available permanent housing.
Veterans Matter is a program of 1Matters.org, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. 1Matters.org works to help all of those on the streets, not just veterans, obtain domestic autonomy. We focus always at the root solution. For Veterans Matter, that is the deposit. Your money immediately and exclusively helps move veterans off the streets and into ready housing. We view Veterans Matter not as a perpetual charity, but as a two-year mission to accomplish one task: help house 8,000 chronically homeless veterans this year and next.
