Return the Favor – Donate to our Veterans!
The Veteran’s Administration (VA) estimates there are approximately 8,000 homeless veterans from the United States Armed Forces in New Jersey. Veteran’s Haven, a NJ State facility offers a transitional housing program for homeless veterans. The veterans are referred to Veteran’s Haven by the VA, parole officers, halfway houses and counselors. Homeless veterans are then medically evaluated by the VA Medical Center and, if eligible, must agree to a two year program that includes psychological, social and vocational rehabilitation.
How can we serve those who served?
