Our Veterans Supportive Housing Program and our Supportive Services for Veterans Families Program provide essential services to those that served us. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, unemployment for Veterans is a staggering 13.3%, 4 points higher than the national average. In Virginia the population of Veterans has grown by 7% from 2011 to 2012 and nearly 2% of these veterans are under 25 years old. You can help us answer the Call to Care for our Heroes by donating online today. Just $1 can make a difference, visit our website to find out how.
