Our veterans exhibit courage on a daily basis, and fought for our freedom. Unfortunately, many of them face difficult situations when reintegrated into society.
Although flawless counts are impossible to come by – the VA estimates that 107,000 veterans are homeless on any given night. Over the course of a year, approximately twice that many experience homelessness.
In addition to the complex set of factors influencing all homelessness – extreme shortage of affordable housing, livable income and access to health care – a large number of displaced and at-risk veterans live with lingering effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse, which are compounded by a lack of family and social support networks.
A top priority for 3rd and Goal Foundation is to help homeless veterans find secure, safe, clean housing that offers a supportive environment free of drugs and alcohol.
Additionally, joblessness and tough economic conditions have made making ends meet tough for everyone. Some veterans, although not homeless, cannot afford to make their living environment comfortable. 3rd and Goal seeks to make sure our veterans can live comfortably despite their economic situation.
Building partnerships with homeless shelters, the VA and similar committed organizations to break the cycle of homelessness for our veterans through creating awareness for, and in some cases constructing, shelters for homeless veterans.
Granting “Touchdowns” to qualified applicants that go toward building or remodeling homes and living areas for veterans and their families facing difficult living environments.
