BENEFITING: Veterans Care Charity
Veterans Care Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of veterans who live within the community. The purpose of this program is to empower and equip homeless veterans with the resources they need to lead high-quality lives, as they reestablish their self-respect and dignity. Through community partnerships, we provide collaborative, coordinated services such as access to emergency shelters, transitional housing, permanent housing, rapid rehousing services, targeted outreach and prevention services, case management, mental health services, STD and other communicable disease testing and treatment, food and personal care vouchers; and transportation to our clients. The organizational goals for this program are to: 1). gradually decrease the number of homeless veterans in Clark County, Nevada, by providing services that will reduce pre-existing barriers that significantly impact access to affordable housing for this population, 2). reduce social stigmatization towards homeless veterans by increasing the number of public awareness and advocacy activities our organizations hosts annually, 3). within one year, decrease the number of homeless veterans living in Clark County, Nevada who do not have access to resources that met their basic care needs by 10%; and 4) reduce recidivism rates of veterans returning to homelessness with 1-3 years after obtaining permanent housing by 10%, annually. This program is intended to support homeless veteran population, living within the Clark County borders of Las Vegas Nevada, 7.
