Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive community where local veterans facing homelessness, substance misuse and other struggles have a place where they can be supported on their journey forward, instead of living life on the streets or within unsafe environments.
For these veterans, developing a path forward can be a long and complicated process. With limited access to resources and benefits, it can be incredibly difficult for them to gain the proper support they need.
Through our Liberty House program, we offer a community where these veterans can gain the tools and assistance to restore their confidence, self-dignity and goal of living stable, independent lives.
Why This Matters
Homelessness is prevalent among veteran communities. Nationwide, 60,000 US veterans are sleeping on the streets and 1.4 million veterans are at risk of homelessness.
Approximately 70% of homeless veterans have substance use problems and 50% have serious mental health illness, both which are leading causes of homelessness. Many of these veterans are not eligible for traditional veteran benefits, and it can be difficult for them to gain the proper support they need.
Many veterans in our community live on limited incomes and have difficulty affording basic life needs such as food, clothing, transportation and other vital needs.
Results & Impact
Through our work, more local veterans are able to overcome substance use, homelessness and difficult pasts, working towards improving their health and lifestyle, gaining affordable housing and discovering the independence they were seeking. In the past year:
