The purpose of the Veterans Accession House is to Help Those Who Served First; our Veterans. As a public benefit corporation, non-profit 501 (c) (3), we offer housing for homeless and at risk student Veterans. As a service provider, we have learned that there are many organizations aiding veterans experiencing health, dependency, disabilities and even homelessness. However, there is a gap in services to help Homeless Student Veterans; a segment of the Veteran population who are under-represented. Statistically, local colleges, State and private universities report homelessness in their population; within this number exists an unacceptable percentage who are veterans. This is where Veterans Accession House makes a difference.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of Veterans, Spouses of Veterans and those who have a proven track record of working in Veteran services. Thus, our motto is “Of the Troops, For the Troops.
