HOUSTON – At KPRC 2, we are proud to showcase those making a difference in the Houston area. Every month in 2022, we partner with Energy transfer to showcase a different nonprofit offering Houstonians a helping hand.
This month we feature Houston-based American Veterans, an organization that was founded by veterans to serve veterans.
This organization’s mission is to end veteran homelessness in the United States. The streets are simply no place for veterans, no place for the many men and women who have volunteered, they and their youth, to protect our freedom. The philosophy of American Veterans is that all Veterans and their families must have their needs met to regain and maintain productive independence.
The program’s website says they help veterans with transitional, emergency, ongoing support, moving, as well as housing searches and help with providing furniture and household items. The organization also provides individual, family and group, mental health and addiction treatment, in addition to PTSD, inner conflict, CBT and anger management counseling. The organization provides veterans with individualized case plans, goals, advocacy, benefits assistance, legal services, and recreational activities during their time with the organization. They also provide financial assistance, rent payments, eviction prevention services, general household items assistance, utility payments, car repairs, and rapid rehousing assistance to veterans.
The US Vets program is also looking for volunteers who want to serve meals, host a fundraiser, help give back during the holidays, or provide mentorship to veterans and their families.

Interested individuals can even partner with the organization to provide direct financial contributions, in-kind and skill-based contributions, employee donations and matching gifts, cause and point-of-care marketing campaigns. sales, project and capital grants, and employee volunteer engagement.
