About The Veterans Group
Veterans are a particularly vulnerable segment of our population. Founded in 2007, The Veterans Group operates two homes in the University City section of Philadelphia, PA. We provide provide shelter, warm meals, and a variety of support programs for up to 40 Veterans who are at high-risk of homelessness. A key component to our success is the warm, family-like atmosphere of our organization. We promote camaraderie among our Veterans at house events and encourage them to build relationships within the local community.
Our mission is to empower Veterans in need to achieve success in civilian society. www.theveteransgroup.org
