In a perfect world, we take care of our troops, their families and those who served our country. At times, either through policy issues or lack of resources, their needs fall through the cracks.
Every base has a family support center. Our goal is to support these centers and assist when resources are limited or don’t exist. It’s through your generosity and our volunteer efforts that we are able to provide these services. If you know someone who is in need of services and hasn’t contacted a Family Service Center, please feel free to contact us directly.
Some services we provide:
- Payments for medical equipment not covered by insurance
- Hotel accommodations for out of town medical care
- In some cases, financial assistance for living expenses
- Referral services
Helping Homeless Vets Stay Clean & Healthy
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), it is estimated that 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night.
Poker Gives, with the help of our volunteer force, distributes clean clothing, towels, toiletries and water to area homeless.
Every Monday night, Poker Gives Executive Director Barbara Jones can be found along side our volunteers distributing donated items to area homeless. In continued efforts to serve our military, we seek homeless Vets in the homeless population to reintroduce them into the veterans system to receive additional services.
