Since 2013, Veterans Project & The Family Assistance Campaign has provided free food assistance to more than 20,000 Veterans and their family members, distributing 445,000 lbs. of food. Feed Our Vets mission is to help Veterans in the United States, their spouses and children, whose circumstances have left them on the battlefield of hunger, and to involve the public in fighting Veteran hunger, through: (1) Community food pantries that provide regular, free food to Veterans and their families, (2) Distribution of related goods and services, (3) Public education and outreach.





Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment
and the other by acts of love. Power based on love
is a thousand times more effective and permanent
then the one derived from fear of punishment.

to meet the challenges of our times

to meet the challenges of our times
You have a right to live. You have a right to be. You have these rights regardless of money, health, social status, or class. You have these rights, man, woman, or child. These rights can never be taken away from you, they can only be infringed. When someone violates your rights, remember, it is not your fault.,I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for one self, one's own family or one's nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace

Obstacles to Helping Homeless Veterans Find Housing

Obstacles to Helping Homeless Veterans Find Housing





There are a number of obstacles involved in helping homeless veterans find housing. According toU.S. Department of Veterans Affairs statistics 11% of the adult homeless population involves American veterans. Most of these veterans are single. They tend to live in cities and urban areas, and they struggle with substance abuse, mental health issues like PTSD and other forms of mental illness, or they have co-occurring disorders.

Helping Homeless veterans

Helping homeless veterans find stable housing means addressing the obstacles that prevent the veteran from reaching this goal. Substance abuse and mental health treatment programs can remove obstacles that stand in the way of the veteran finding stable and reliable housing.

The Real Number of Homeless Veterans is Impossible to Determine


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released an estimate that calculates on any given night there will be 47,725 veterans who are homeless. The true extent of homelessness among veterans cannot be calculated with complete accuracy because some of these individuals fall through the cracks
This number is unacceptably high even according to the best estimates, and more needs to be done helping homeless veterans get off the street or warms clothes to wear and a warm coat and warm meal .
Helping Homeless Veterans: What More can be Done?

Many people mistakenly believe that since there is a VA and other government agencies that are tasked with helping homeless veterans that there is no pressing need to do more, but this is completely false.
American veterans deserve to be made whole, and to have a place to call home that is their own. As Americans, we owe them this, as well as our gratitude for everything that they have risked or lost while in military service.

One of most important answers is permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless people with special needs, including people with disabilities, mental illness, and addiction problems.

Some possible ideas on how you can help the homeless veteran population or in any human being in your area of the USA include:

Take a look around your own local community and see if there is a need for helping someone in need. The odds are if you live in a city or urban area there are veterans and citizens who need help finding stable housing and other resources such as food or warm clothes to wear .

Contact homeless and veteran organizations in your area to see what you can do. Volunteer to help in any way that you can, whether that is filling out paperwork or trying to locate homeless veterans who need assistance and shelter .

What we have done is makeup Homeless “survival kits.” We Create and distribute kits that include items such as Military mess kits, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and cosmetics sleeping bags warm clothing and warm underwear like long johns. ( We Try coordinating this through a group that gives out meals from a van, for example.)

During cold weather,We organize drives for blankets, coats, hats, scarves, mittens, socks, and the like.
Phone calls. Help people experiencing homelessness contact loved ones by offering the opportunity to make free long distance calls and calls to find work and the help they need we help citizens get ID birth certificates . Donate to help us show these beautiful people they are not alone

Inquire about helping homeless veterans; you may be surprised at how great the need is in your area.
Donate to veteran organizations and charities that are specifically designed to assist the veteran population. These funds are sorely needed, and even a small donation can have a big impact on the life of a homeless veteran.VETERANS PROJECT is a good start!!

Contact your politicians and elected officials to bring attention to the need for helping homeless veterans. When voters reach out to those in elected positions changes in the current laws or veterans programs are possible so that veterans receive additional assistance and have an easier time accessing the programs designed to help them once their military service is finished.Giving the Gift of a Warm Meal

Give something back by helping homeless veterans. After everything that they have done to keep us safe and protect our country, they deserve our support now more than ever.
Today many Americans their total cluelessness regarding certain positive qualities which, once upon a time, were considered to be attributes that one strove to cultivate in their own character.

Government Alone Can't Take Care Of Our Veterans

"One organization or one government can't support the entire veteran population in the way that they need — not after over a dozen years of war with thousands of military families sacrificing,"

"But if more people pull together and take a more active approach, we'll get a lot more done."

"We have to change our thinking,"

"We can't expect our government to be the whole part and parcel of being the caretaker of men and women in the military."

Supporting the troops is not a political position, but a community responsibility. It comes down to awareness. Because less than one percent of the American population serves in the military, the majority of the country isn't attuned to veterans' everyday needs."That's a staggering statistic when you think that less than two million people defend over 300 million people,"

"So naturally there's going to be a massive part of the population that's going to have no clue as to what military service is about and what the families go through... The military serves in war, and you go to the mall."

Hundreds of non-governmental agencies provide various veterans services and all can use contributions of time, money or goods.I advocates for compulsory military or Peace Corps service for young people as a means of raising awareness of veterans' contributions."If you do that, in less than 10 years, you've created a whole generation of Americans who've had a shared experience of contributing to this country,"

While it is acknowledges the approach might be radical, the result would be a greater understanding of the sacrifices made by service members and their families. But it doesn't have to be so extreme. Just thinking about making a gesture of thanks is a good first step,

AS TRUE PATRIOTS THESE ARE THE PRINCIPLES ON WHICH WE STAND: GOD, CONSTITUTION, COUNTRY AND OUR NATIONS VETERANS. GOD IS FIRST AND FOREMOST WITH US. FOR APART FROM GOD THERE IS NO FREEDOM ! THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BE GOVERNED BY GOD SHALL BE RULED BY TYRANTS!!
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS 'CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS'. OUR RIGHTS, FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES ARE UNALIENABLE MEANING THEY ARE ENDOWED ON US BY OUR CREATOR, GOD ALONE! WE HAVE NO OTHER AUTHORITY TO WHICH WE MUST GO IN ORDER TO HAVE AND EXERCISE OUR RIGHTS. OUR CONSTITUTION SERVES 'ONLY' AS A WRITTEN GUARANTEE FROM GOVERNMENT THAT IT WILL NOT INFRINGE ON OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS, FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES !!!

OUR COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES. THEY ARE THE CORNERSTONE OF OUR SUCCESS AS A COUNTRY. A COUNTRY WITHOUT GOD IS AS A SHIP WITHOUT A RUDDER TOSSED TOO AND FRO BY THE STORMS OF THIS WORLD TO END ONLY IN SHIPWRECK. AS TRUE PATRIOTS WE MUST STAND IN PLACE OF THAT MISSING RUDDER STEERING OUR COUNTRY BACK TO GOD AND OUR CONSTITUTION!!!

WE MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER TO HONOR OUR NATIONS VETERANS, THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THE NECESSARY SACRIFICES UP TO AND INCLUDING THE GIVING OF ONES LIFE IN DEFENSE OF OUR GOD, CONSTITUTION AND COUNTRY! IT IS A DEBT WE CAN NEVER REPAY! THEY DESERVE BOTH HONOR AND RESPECT AND IT IS OUR GOAL TO SEE THAT THEY GET IT!!!?

Meals for Homeless Veterans

While veterans represent 8% of the total population in the United States, they are disproportionately represented among our homeless: a startling 12% of the homeless population are veterans, or 16% of homeless adults. Most homeless veterans–over 90%–are male. About half of homeless veterans are disabled.

You can help.

A recent study conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reports that on any given night there may be over 75,600 homeless veterans in shelters and on the streets across the country. Over the course of one year (October 2008-September 2009), 136,334 veterans spent at least one night in a shelter or transitional housing program, more than 5,000 of them alongside their families.

While veterans represent 8% of the total population in the United States, they are disproportionately represented among our homeless: a startling 12% of the homeless population are veterans, or 16% of homeless adults. Most homeless veterans--over 90%--are male. About half of homeless veterans are disabled.

Nearly three million veterans and their families don't have enough to eat each month. This is in addition to the physical, mental, and emotional trauma many veterans contend with every day.

Two-thirds of America's homeless veterans served for at least three years, and one-third were stationed in a war zone. They have served in all the conflicts of recent years, including Afghanistan and Iraq (OEF/OIF).

Around the United States, community groups are hampered by lack of space, lack of funding, and a lack of publicity about the numbers of veterans who are homeless and the challenges they face while trying to turn their lives around. As a result, veterans in need of help don't have many places to turn.

You can help ease their burden. Just $25 helps provide nourishing meals for veterans.

100% of your donation will go to the program described above as a grant through

Hopefully one day we won’t have any homeless vets, or homeless people at all. In the meantime, having a few care packages to hand out is a great way to help out, and can be a fun group project for your family, church group, or book club!

 Many will tell you That ,The lord only helps those who help themselves !!! and will not help those who may have issues beyond anyone’s control and yet many of those who may be asking for help have work their whole lives and yet life has a funny sense of humor, I heard and then what of the others those that have lost their way and can not seem to find their way back to life or what they once had ,again life has a funny sense of humor yet cruel, for me to hear another say such things as the lord only helps those who do not help themselves ,

“There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.” ,and If I am correct we were created by god and we are human !! , I do not think people truly understand the meaning of the words they read or do they have an understanding or and awakening to the true meaning of love and god!!! , I think the best way to put this is simply this , for god so loved the world he gave his only son , tell me my friend what would you not do for your son or Daughter !!! and that is exactly what god expects of us and each and for each other and our world.

Know this brother we are all in this together no matter race color or creed or the issues we may have or the idealism that hold us from awakening to the truth and one another ,“But if I’m it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I’m going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity’s last war, then I am the battlefield.” Joseph F Barber
