Nicholas’ Story

“Just knowing I had a roof over my head because of Welcome Home and lived among other Veterans, that was a weight lifted off me … I wouldn’t be where I’m at today without Welcome Home.”

When he returned home after four years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Nicholas found himself alone and eventually homeless. He believed he put himself in this hole, but was determined to fight his way out. Welcome Home simply provided the support, tools and resources to empower him.

Don’t Leave
Our Veterans
Behind

On the battlefield this is the code. Unfortunately, some service members have a difficult time transitioning back into civilian life, many carrying scars of combat—some physical, some mental.

Welcome Home is taking action to reduce Veteran homelessness by being more than just a shelter. We provide supportive services, tools and resources to improve overall quality of life of those who served.

Just as there’s a commitment to never leave the wounded on the battlefield, we commit to never leaving our Veterans on the streets.

Will you join us in the battle to end Veteran homelessness?
