HOMES FOR OUR VETERANS
The issue of homelessness among our veteran population is a serious concern for our foundation. Every year, anywhere from 300,000 to 400,000 veterans experience homelessness, and every night as many as 200,000 veterans find themselves without a place to sleep. It is shocking that those who heroically served America in the military should find themselves struggling to find a bed to sleep in or a meal to eat. Veterans of the Vietnam era are disproportionately represented among homeless veterans. In fact, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the number of homeless veterans from the Vietnam era today is greater than the number of service persons that died during that war. Tragically, this nation is now also seeing an influx of new veterans returning from service in Iraq and Afghanistan only to face the same situation.
To address the issue of homelessness, MADF has launched Homes for Veterans. Our program provides safe and secure housing and counseling, financial management, credit repair, legal services, health and social services to veterans and their families as needed. If the veteran successfully completes our program they will be eligible to purchase the home in which they are currently living in or another home.
MADF's Homes For Veterans Programs will give priority to the following veteran groups:
- Veterans and their families with children who are facing homelessness,
- Disabled veterans, their families and caregivers who face financial difficulties with securing homes; and
- Women veterans with dependent children facing homelessness.
The Program is in Washington, Texas, Oregon and California. If you are a veteran who is currently homeless please fill out the contact box below.
