Support Our Veterans
I HAV Resources has 10 programs that will focus around Homelessness amongst families, adolescences, and veterans. Veterans who have returned to civilian life are either properly trained and educated in skills that will translate outside of the military or they are not, which causes them to have a hard time adapting. For most veterans, they are at a time in their life where it is a little more difficult to start over. For other veterans, they are disabled or diagnosed and lack the proper education and support from the military to survive in civilian life. The following programs are designed for all individuals and families in need of assistance.
Program Name: I HAV Shelter
Focus: Make sure every veteran has shelter
Problem: Our veteran population is living on the streets in tents, cardboard boxes, or worst. Natural disasters are destroying homes for families who do not own or families that were living paycheck to paycheck and now have no place to go. Some families lose their homes by being evicted and are now displaced and have no options due to a lack of funds available.
Solution: I HAV Shelter is a program that helps to provide a place to live to all its veteran members. All veteran individuals and families will be assisted in getting shelter, rooms, homes or veteran living assistance. If someone is mentally disabled, we will assist those individuals that qualify for certain programs to live in group homes do so. We will help all low-income families apply and understand what programs they qualify for to receive living assistance. Temporary housing will be provided to families and individuals displaced due to natural disasters or evicted due to a major life event. I HAV Resources plans to not only work with organizations that provide these services but plan to own buildings to provide for even more assistance nationwide and beyond.
