Urgent Need

America is the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. One of the bravest things one can do is put on the uniform to risk all to defend our country.

There are 37,252 homeless Veterans on the streets of our nation – they need our help today!

Our simple yet innovative and efficient process reduces a Veteran’s waiting time for permanent housing from weeks to minutes. This means you can help us house a Veteran Hero right now.

How It Works

Veterans Matter works directly with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and local VA homeless programs to provide rental deposits and first month’s rent for chronically unhoused Veterans.

Veterans Matter takes requests from VA social workers who’s Veteran clients are are sitting with a newly signed lease, but lack the funds for a security deposit and first month’s rent. Once the request is approved the Veteran gets the keys and is finally welcomed home.

“This is going to be over. I hardly had any hope left. I’ll finally have a place to live.”

Every single dollar we deploy results in another veteran housed in LONG-TERM VA-supported permanent housing that has a 91% success rate keeping them housed!
