What We Do
Many of the physical and emotional needs of our returning troops are met by the U.S. Veterans Administration, state programs, community initiatives and nonprofit agencies.
But hunger is a covert affliction and young veterans are sadly underserved. It is a growing problem perpetuated by joblessness, poverty, physical limitations, lack of education, lack of work experience, skill deficiencies―and homebound circumstances that confine a growing number of young veterans to the shadows of suffering and solitude. For HONOR VETERANS NOW, this is unacceptable.
How and Where We Serve
In the near term, HVN is committed to feeding veterans across only Texas battling hunger by funding a hot meal each day through local and national meal providers. In the long term, we hope to expand our reach to feed struggling veterans in need across America.
Key criteria for support through HVN partner organizations:
- U.S. Armed Forces veteran
- Under the age of 60
- Demonstrated financial need
- Reside only in Texas
Almost 1.5 million veterans live in poverty in the United States.
HONOR VETERANS NOW could not achieve our objectives without the partnership of feeding organizations, such as Meals on Wheels. Thanks to these alliances, we are strategically positioned to achieve bold, high-impact goals over the next five years as we identify key program priorities and build powerful operational alliances across Texas. Other partners include:
- Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston
- Another Chance House
- Meals on Wheels of Erath County
- Meals on Wheels/Silver Sage
- VNA Meals on Wheels of Dallas
