Is there any information I can give them to help them out? Do we have programs here locally where they can go to get help? Rather than give them a few bucks, I want to make sure there is somewhere they can go.

Thanks for all that have served.

I think the VA would be a good place to start.

P.S. On second thought they told my dad they couldnt afford to pay for his cancer treatments so maybe they cant help

This is so nice...you're awesome! Now I want to go and search it out. There has to be SOMEthing.
Back home my husband and I ran an Off-Road Club that was also a Christian Outreach and we
worked with both shelters and food pantries to help out the less fortunate.

We've been here 6 months and haven't gotten back into that groove. Thank you for posting
this and reminding me of what we'd been called to do....we gotta get off our butts!

x2 with the thanks for serving!!!

Thanks guys for the suggestion on the VA. I'll have to mention it to some of the vets that I see and make sure they have a way to contact the VA also.

By the way if Dad is old enough to have served during Vietnam and was even off shore on a ship he has money coming due to cancer. Diabetes, cancer and some other illnesses have been linked to agent orange exposure, and make disability pay available. You do not have to have been on land to get exposted. Marines and others coming aboard ship exposed everyone.

My dad is getting a check every month. His cancer doc did all the paperwork for this.

In the Patriot Guard, we donate a lot of stuff to three places in downtown phoenix that are set up specifically for Homeless Vets. The Mens home is called the Mana House (Marines, Army,Navy, Air force), the Womens facility is called Sally's place, then there is another place we support called The Vet Store where we donate funiture and stuff that they give to homeless Vets that find a place but need to furnish it, the Vet Store is run by Veterans for Veterans at 1620 E McDowell Rd. They are a registered non profit, and can provide a tax id number. Their info Dave @ 602-253-0759 Please leave a message if necessary.

I have delivered stuff to all three of these places, met a group of the residents of the two shelters and toured the buildings and I must say that they do amazing things for vets in need. The store is not much to look at but has helped more than 90 vets fully furninish homes this yeaar alone and they are always looking for more stuff to help.

Mana house is down on Madison st in south Phoenix and the Womens house is farther north in mid phoenix.

I have a contact point that I can get more info from if you need it but if you search for Madison Street MANA house there is a website, I can't get there at work tho.

Good to know. I always give my stuff to the Good Will but I would rather target Vets given a choice. Thanks for the info.
