I would like to ask our President, Donald Trump: when we bring our veterans home, shouldn't there ALWAYS be a home for our veterans to go home to?








The more important question is WHY is the government setting up charitable organizations to help them help homeless veterans? For more information just click here. Where are my tax dollars going if my own government cannot support its military? The next question must then be ... how much of every dollar you donate is used to pay salaries and what is left over to house homeless veterans?








Here is the reality according to, but not limited to, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) states that the nation’s homeless veterans are predominantly male, with roughly 9% being female. The majority are single; live in urban areas .... About 11% of the adult homeless population are veterans.








Homeless veterans are younger on average than the total veteran population. Approximately 9% are between the ages of 18 and 30, and 41% are between the ages of 31 and 50. Conversely, only 5% of all veterans are between the ages of 18 and 30, and less than 23% are between 31 and 50.








America’s homeless veterans have served in World War II, the Korean War, Cold War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Lebanon, Persian Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq (OEF/OIF), and the military’s anti-drug cultivation efforts in South America. Nearly half of homeless veterans served during the Vietnam era. Two-thirds served our country for at least three years, and one-third were stationed in a war zone.








About 1.4 million other veterans, meanwhile, are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.

So how do we solve the problem? It simple. Donate to an organization who uses those dollars to help build micro-apartments* for veterans now. An organization whose entire staff is made of up of volunteers. Like us. All you have to do is click on one of the DONATE buttons

*What is a micro-apartment sanctuary?
A micro-apartment housing complex will provide each and every resident with a private room measuring approximately 12 feet in length by 8 feet in width. Each room will include a locker to store clothes. Each room will also have a television with access to movie channels, reading lamp and side table. Female veterans will have their own secured floors as will male veterans. Access to any floor will require a special card key. Accommodations will also be set aside for service animals. Each complex will have shower facilities where veterans can shower in privacy -- in their own shower stall. Each complex will also provide low cost washing machines and dryers so that veterans can do their laundry. For those veterans who might have more belongings than can fit into a locker -- no problem, safe, secure storage lockers will be available to store those additional items. A cafeteria will provide at least three (3) nourishing meals at either very low or no cost to the veterans. There will also be a library where veterans can access books, and a computer lab where veterans can access the internet. There will be onsite medical care for veterans requiring assistance. Also a social service office where veterans can meet with a variety of individuals that will work tirelessly to find them permanent housing. Likewise, there will also be a community room where veterans can hang out with other veterans. A theater where stage shows can be exhibited. And a chapel will be on-site so that veterans can continue too pursue their spiritual beliefs.
Most importantly, veterans can stay at one of these complexes for as long as they need to.

PLEASE ALSO CONSIDER BEING A PART OF OUR
GOOGLE ADVISORY GROUP
These first 1,000 people who have signed our petition and then join our GOOGLE ADVISORY GROUP will become our "Advisory Board." Our Advisory Board will help us designate how each dollar raised will then be spent, help approve designs of future shelters and so very much more. Too, if you are local to the Walnut Creek/Concord area, we encourage you to become a volunteer helping at our office. You can give from one (1) hour a week to as many as you would like. Just let us know. We are moving into our new, expanded offices by May 7, 2018. Anyone with extensive social media experience is encouraged to contact us.
