Challenge

Veterans On the Rise delivers permanent and transitional housing models to assist veterans who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, TBI, and other ailments. Purpose: Shedding light of the issues of homelessness with the film and to invite supporters to donate to our drive for warm weather clothing for veterans.

Solution

The project will bring together a large network of community, corporate, and business leaders who care about homeless veterans and veteran families. We are hoping that through this event we will gain access to an additional 1,000 hours of volunteer time, and that we will also raise between 5,000 and 10,000 in support of the vets.

Long-Term Impact

The potential long term impact is that Veterans On the Rise would make optimal use of supporters kindness to take the work of the organization to new levels, and to more seamlessly help the veterans and veterans served achieve the goal of living more sustainable lives that they love. We are on the cusp of adding more sustainable footprints to their lives, to helping them change their diets, and helping them reconnect with families. Alumni are eager to engage too.
