The Veterans Matter Mission is simple: House as many unhoused veterans as we can, as fast as we can, while preventing more from becoming unhoused.
There are over 57,000 homeless veterans on the streets of our nation. Many of them qualify for voucher-assisted living provided by HUD-VASH, but they lack the initial rental deposits necessary to secure their housing. That’s where we come in: Veterans Matter raises money and works directly with HUD and the VA to ensure funds go straight to the landlords for the vets in need. We seamlessly integrate local communities, foundations, corporations, and veterans groups with the VA and HUD to move local chronically homeless veterans off the streets and into permanent, supported housing. Once housed, services are lined up to help veterans and their families recapture their lives and return to domestic autonomy.
Veterans Matter has been able to house over 590 veterans, thanks much in part to the continuing support of our celebrity roster:
Gary Sinise, Susan Sarandon, Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Ice-T, John Mellencamp, Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, Kix Brooks, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Willie Nelson, Heart, Mario Lopez, Natalie Stovall & The Drive, Mitch Albom, Darryl Worley, Darius Rucker, Jennifer Nettles, Gene Hackman, Madison Rising, Emerson Drive, and Big & Rich.
Mid-Atlantic chapter has recently started up thanks to the unflinching support of our volunteers, check it out!
