We’re Building A Better Future For Our
Chronically Homeless Clients
Since 2011 we’ve been a part of the movement in Atlanta and the southeast to provide solutions to homelessness, in cooperation with the initiative detailed in the United Way Homeless Commission’s 10 year Plan to end homelessness.
Sadly These Are The Stats
These are the unfortunate statistics regarding Veterans and the homeless.
Homes of Light is doing everything we can to reduce and hopefully eliminate these numbers.
No person should have to suffer from homelessness, especially our Veterans.
22 Veterans per day commit suicide
21% of the homeless population is considered “chronically homeless”
Just over 300,000 Veterans are homeless
But, There’s Good News!
Homes of Light is making great progress helping people find permanent housing, vehicles to help them get to work and job training as well as a renewed faith that their future will be bright and prosperous.
Homes of Light:
- Provided housing for 351 homeless Veterans and 608 chronically homeless clients.
- Connected 277 to their own permanent housing.
- Provide substance abuse counseling and connected vets directly to mental health treatment if necessary.
- We connect Veterans to employment training and job opportunities.
Helping Homeland Heros:
- An independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting the mission of ending veteran homelessness
- Raises awareness in communities about veteran suicide, mental health, and homelessness
- Veteran’s Advocates and Coordinators
- Veteran’s resources and assistance
