BENEFITING: ADVENT HOUSE MINISTRIES INC
We serve homeless and low-income veterans who need a fresh start. We provide employability and life skills, and a place for veterans to have a creative outlet. We have seen veterans better manage post-traumatic stress symptoms, gain confidence, and gain the tools to manage the stressors in their lives by utilizing our programs. These skills can translate into job skills, relationship skills, and skills to maintain mental health, which all increase the ability to find and maintain housing. The veterans met weekly for an art program designed just for them. It provided a safe space and a network of support, bringing together vets from local shelters and those who have recently been housed. We need your help to bring the art classes back and to support the employment work we do with the veterans. Here is your chance to make a difference in the life of a veteran!
