No Veteran should ever be on the streets after he or she has made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country.

The Vet Hunters along with our collaborative partners are always having special events such as “Stand Downs” & Resource Fairs where we are able to provide much needed supportive services along with food, clothing, hygiene & first aid kits to those Veterans in need.
