Many thousands of veterans who defended our country's freedom have been unable to find their way in society. They live in a bleak, hopeless world without decent shelter, adequate nutrition, or medical care. Some of these people are true war heroes who received physical and psychological injuries during horrific combat that few could imagine.
About one-third of our Nation’s adult homeless population have served their country in the Armed Services. Current population estimates suggest that about 154,000 Veterans (male and female) are homeless on any given night.
The DAV helps homeless veterans make the transition from life on the streets to one of productivity and normalcy. Our motto, "We Don't Leave our Wounded Behind," is a heartfelt principle, a rule, and a promise that we, as a grateful nation, must keep. We must remain steadfast in our efforts to fulfill our promise to veterans by ensuring that no veteran who honorably served his or her country is ever left behind.
