When veterans come home from active duty, they have various expenses that they might not be able to cover on their own.
MIlitary service dogs are trained for:
Many veterans come home with physical and emotional scars from their service. They often need help paying for the care to remedy these problems
Veteran homelessness has decreased by 2.1 percent between 2018 and 2019, and by 50 percent since 2010. These encouraging numbers came from data that will be included in HUD’s Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) and were announced by Secretary Ben Carson.
The families of service men and women often need help paying for various expenses. They might need to travel to see their loved one or require support after that military member passes away.
The VA has many benefits and services to assist homeless veterans. Disability benefits, education, health care, rehabilitation services, residential care, and compensated work therapy are among the services offered to eligible veterans.
