Department of Veterans Affairs

Move-in-Essentials

 

When a Veteran leaves a shelter or transitional housing and moves to a permanent residence they don't have the basic household items needed to set up their new home.

 

Items we take for granted such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, basic hygiene products and more are needed.

 

By conducting a Move-in-Essential collection drive at your house of worship, school, business or civic organization you'll help make the Veteran's new residence a "home".

 

Reach out to your VA facility contact person about ways you can help support Veterans in your community.

Military Outreach USA has worked with VA caseworkers to develop this suggested list of items.

Make sure to submit your donation form with your items to receive a letter from the VA acknowledging your tax deductible gift.

 

Transit Passes

 

Did you ever wonder how a homeless Veteran travels to a VA facility to receive treatment? In many cases it is by public transportation.

 

When discussing the needs of Veterans with your VA contact, ask them if they have a need for for transit cards or passes.

Every VA facility is different. There is no "cookie cutter" one fit all program to address a system with hundreds of medical facilities across the nation. As each facility is adopted new opportunities to serve will be presented. Military Outreach USA asks that as you work with your adopted VA facility that you provide us with what you have done in service to our Veterans. We will share that information with others in the Adopter Network to use in their community.
