SUICIDE AWARENESS PROGRAM
National Suicide Awareness Program Officer
CELL: (843) 814-3760
The Military Order of the Purple Heart was the first National Service Organization to create a Suicide Awareness Program and appoint a national officer for this position in 2016. This Program began in response to the crisis of the 20-22 veterans and active duty service men and women who end their lives to the epidemic of suicide daily.
Homeless Veterans Program
JAMES G. HOLLAND III
NATIONAL WELFARE / HOMELESS VETERANS OFFICER
CELL: (850) 545-9576
Homelessness amongst America’s Veterans has been cut in half since 2010, yet many veterans in our nation still are without a place to call home.
Chapters, Units, and Departments nationwide participate in Stand Downs and various projects and programs to bring aid, comfort, and resources to those who find themselves displaced or homeless.
If you know a Veteran who is homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless, refer him or her to a local VA Medical Center, where VA staff are ready to help. Veterans and their families can also call 1-877-4AID-VET to be connected to VA services.
Vacations For Veterans seeks to provide Purple Heart Medal recipients from the Iraq and Afghanistan Campaigns with a week of free lodgings donated by vacation homeowners.
Though it would be our honor to help all veterans, due to the small size of our organization, Vacations For Veterans has a very limited mission to help only Purple Heart Medal recipients from the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns. If you are a veteran who has recently received the Purple Heart Medal, and wish to apply for our program, please fill out this form.
Each wounded veteran faces new challenges: readjusting, rebuilding their lives, and reconnecting with their families. For many of our wounded veterans, time away to rejuvenate is a luxury that is often unattainable and unaffordable.
When you make a donation of time at your vacation home, or a donation of money to sponsor a veteran, you give our wounded veterans a brief respite when they need it most. You make entire families feel better through your generosity.
Providing wounded veterans with a week of relaxation is a wonderful opportunity for both veterans and donors alike. It is a chance for many of us to show our appreciation for our veteran’s honorable service to our country.
To help us help veterans, please donate time
