Veteran Services Advocates
The very first supporters engaging in the mission to house homeless veterans are the Veterans Services organizations.
Veterans groups will not forget their brothers and sisters still living on the streets of our nation. Streets where they are being beaten, robbed, even killed. Yet if this happened behind enemy lines, we would be outraged.
The VSO’s will not rest until every veteran is home!
Locally, it was the Lucas County Veterans Services Commission that first rallied up to help us house more veterans. Since then, the Veterans Services Commission has helped house at least half of the 250+ veterans housed through Operation Hometown.
Since then we have gained the support of organizations such as American Legions, Veterans of Foreign Wars, AMVETS, Vietnam Veterans groups, local and state Veterans Services Commissions and more.
For 2018 Legionnaire Bill Zornow of Legion Post 514 in Ida, MI will be working to get the word out about an initiative he created called “One for 100 Campaign”. His vision is that every Legion Post help house at least one veteran nationwide. We think others have an interest. The month he came up with the idea the brothers and sisters of his post, Post 514, along with the post Club Room, Legion Riders, Sons and Auxiliary all committed $1000 each. Thats $5,000 from his post. Contact us if you would like to be connected with Bill.
