Ed Harmon, Became aware of a terrible situation concerning the homeless veterans. The veterans subsequently die due to Exposure because of a lack of a shelter.
Our Mission is to provide short term shelter for Homeless Veterans who do not have immediate access to shelter. At the present we are partnered with Maine Bureau of Veterans Services to identify current needs. There are at least 10 Homeless Veterans who meet these criteria at any point in time in the State of Maine.
Boothbay Veterans Emergency Temporary Shelter (V. E. T. S.) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that concentrates on getting homeless Veterans off the cold hard ground and into a soft warm heated bed.
We do not turn anyone away veteran in need of a shelter. We work with the Veteran Adminstration Benefits and Health Care.
No Veteran Should Be Without a Place to sleep.
Boothbay V. E. T. S. and VA are committed to ending homelessness among Veterans.
Our focus is:
- Conducting coordinated outreach to proactively seek out Veterans in need of assistance.
- Connecting homeless and at-risk Veterans with housing solutions, health care,community employment services and other required supports.
- Collaborating with federal, state and local agencies; employers;
housing providers, faith-based and community nonprofits; and others to expand employment and affordable housing options for Veterans exiting
- We are committted do what ever it takes to get them off the street for what they have given for this country.
