In the hands of founder Matthew Shepley, Veterans Helping Veterans of America has been on a mission since 2009 to end veteran homelessness. The former United States Marine had a vision that every U.S. veteran would have a place to call home when so many struggle with the transition back to civilian life.

VHVA’s daughter organization, VHV of Western North Carolina, has been developing a veteran residence where vets also work on a farm and receive job training in sustainable energy and agriculture. For more information, visit Veterans Helping Veterans of America.
