Summary

The American Homeless Families Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to feeding homeless Veterans. Food and warm clothing are essential for survival during a time when shelter has become a grave situation. Through the Gift of Giving our exclusive Survival Packs to homeless Veterans, you give each Veteran food for 30 days and winter clothes to stay warm. By supplying a full month of food and warmth, we are greatly impacting survival rates of homeless Veterans in our communities.

Challenge

Nationally there are 46,000 homeless Veterans roaming the streets begging for help. These homeless Vets are herd like cattle to continuously move, due to city loitering ordinances - no sitting, standing, camping or sleeping in public areas. Newly enacted bans on feeding homeless people in public areas has caused a much higher percentage rate of deaths due to starvation caused by controlled feeding city ordinances. 38 Homeless Veterans die every day! They are our Forgotten Heroes!

Solution

SavingOurVets Survival Packs supply each homeless Vet with a WalMart Gift Card for food and essentials for 30 days, a 60" x 80" heavy wool blanket for extreme climates, a knit hat and Subzero gloves in order to stay warm. Every homeless Veteran that receives a Survival Pack will survive even the harshest winter conditions. From all over America, SavingOurVets Survival Packs help homeless Veterans survive these inhumane conditions.

Long-Term Impact

Through the Gift of Giving the SavingOurVets Survival Packs, you are giving homeless Veterans the chance to survive. SavingOurVets Survival Packs greatly impact homeless Veterans survival rates in our American communities.
