How You Can Help Us

According to a 2013 NCVAS (National Center for Veteran Analysis and Statistics) report, the current Veteran population is 21,978,000.  Of this number, 1.2 million are WWII, 2.1 million Korean, 5.5 million peacetime, 6.5 million Gulf War and 7.3 million are Vietnam Veterans.  Alongside these statistics are the number of Veterans considered to be disabled in some way and that is a staggering 3.74 million men and women.  As if that isn’t sad enough, 250,000 of those are homeless.

Why are so many homeless?  There are several factors that contribute to this problem.  Some have no families that stayed through the multiple deployments. Some turned to substance abuse to cope with the changes in their lives or to deal with the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) that they now face from what they endured.  But now, the signature wound of the Middle East conflicts is TBI, Traumatic Brain Injury, for which some homeless veterans are suffering from.  TBI occurs from explosive devises that jar the brain causing permanent damage. This irreversible condition contributes to the loss of the ability to work, strained relationships, and poor decision choices.  For some, they end up on the streets, unable to support themselves. 

Moving Veterns Forward relies on donations of money, furniture and house hold items to help veterans set up a home of their own. Many of them do not even have a bed to sleep on.
