  • Business Plan

    The organization will grow through increased community presence, name recognition, increased veteran referrals, partnership with local real estate agencies, increased awareness program about homeless veterans and why they fall through the cracks of existing programs, supply and demand, expansion into other states. Although programs exist to assist veterans, they cater mainly to single veterans or those with children. A family unit of a veteran and spouse falls through the cracks. Additionally many programs do not assist veterans in finding adequate housing for their needs i.e. physical therapy equipment and/or occupational therapy equipment or accommodations for caregivers who need to live with the veteran. Our organization deals with real estate agents acquainted with the needs and requirements of veterans to place them in housing units that meet such needs and requirements. Once housing is found the organization provides the landlord with the security deposit required to secure it. Said security deposit is then returned to the organization upon termination of the lease so as to assist other homeless veterans in need. Being homeless is expensive and many veterans exhaust their savings while looking for adequate housing. Our services help these veterans get housing which meets their needs and requirements while helping them maintain their dignity and helping stem the 22 a day veteran suicide crisis one veteran at a time.

  • Self Identified Competition

    As there are no other organizations or program addressing this issue, we have no competitors at this time. Our organization was founded by a veteran who personally dealt with this situation and knows how difficult it can be with severe PTSD, a TBI, and inability to work to have no one advocating on your behalf. As such this is the only organization to date addressing this specific issue for these veterans.
