Three Hots and A Cot is a 501(c) (3) organization formed by veterans to help veterans. Our primary mission is to assist homeless military veteran’s transition from life on the streets into a self-sustained lifestyle. Changing one life at a time - Over one third of the homeless population is veterans. Our Initiative is not new - it is not that much different from what many organizations are doing across the country. Our Initiative is needed. There are homeless men and women on the streets of Alabama that served our nation. For various reasons these veterans of the Armed Services find themselves living on the streets, in abandoned houses, under bridges, in old warehouses, in city parks, and in the back of rental trucks. They are homeless. Three Hots and A Cot was founded by veterans - to serve our brothers and sisters who need our help. NOT a Homeless Shelter - but a gateway to Independence. Whatever the need of the veteran - we will help them meet it. Whatever the road block is - we will help them move it. Whatever the hurdle in the veteran's path - we will help them climb over it. Three Hots and A Cot's objective is to be a source of healing and prevention of a national tragedy.
