How to Help
100% of these donations go to the Veterans, no administration costs.
Did you know that there are 22,658,000 Veterans in America? If we using 13% (which is the number used by the USDVA) the number of possible homeless Veterans in America would indicate there are between 529,000 and 840,000, Veterans who are homeless at some time during the year. These are men and women who served their country in times of war and times of peace. Did you know the the Veterans pop. in California, is 1,972,000. There are a estmated 46,000 Veterans living in Kern County.
Most Veterans who are homeless are male and single. Few services are provided from local, state, and federal programs for homeless males, Veterans.
Who takes care of the Veterans who do not qualify for VA care and benefits? Who offers them a place to sleep, hot meals, and helps them get back into the work force? Who offers these Veterans a hand up, not a hand out?
For the most part, that help comes from private, non-profit corporations and foundations like the California Veterans Assistance Foundation.
Providing services takes money. Foundations and Corporations fight hard for a share of big federal state and private grants. Fund raising is another way to raise money to provide services to the men and women who joined the military and served their country faithfully. The California Veterans Assistance Foundation relies on the generosity of people like you to help end the National Disgrace of Homeless Veterans.
