Please join us online on November 10th for our virtual presentation of the 2021 U.S.VETS SALUTE Gala.

 

In the face of challenges we face as a nation, we are excited to come together to recognize our veterans.

This year’s Gala will honor our dedicated partners and launch a new national campaign to Make Camo Your Cause.

 

COVID-19, economic challenges and systemic inequities have changed the world this year, and pushed us to advance as a country, as individuals, and as an organization. We are proud to say that through it all, U.S.VETS did not falter in our commitment to our nation’s veterans. Last year we served more than 18,000 veterans, and successfully housed 9,000 veterans and families nationwide.

 

Our impact was made possible by the commitment of U.S.VETS Board, staff and tremendous community partners across the nation. When the pandemic demanded that we change how we serve, our staff jumped into action, shifting overnight to essential duty teams and working tirelessly to support our veteran clients. Our community partners were no different, stepping up with the resources and support we needed to serve the men and women that bravely served our country.

 

Your commitment has helped U.S.VETS become the nation’s largest nonprofit with boots on the ground to combat the epidemic of veteran homelessness. We vow to continue in our mission – increasing services for homeless and at-risk veterans, expanding homeless prevention programs, and building new supportive veteran housing – until no one who bravely served our country is left sleeping on our streets.

 

Join us as we honor our partners, recognize a year of service and celebrate the extraordinary community that has come together to #HONORUSVETS.
