Description

Homeless veterans road home! Come join us in a 5k run or 1 mile fun run/walk, that will help the ones that have made our freedom and independence possible. The route will take place in the center of our city and the 5k will cross right by our Veterans Memorial Park

Passageways Living Center is designed to help our veterans with a hand up, not a hand out.  We provide a warm and safe environment for them to live and accomplish their goals.  We provide a road map through the maze of VA programs and give them the time they need to work through the system without having to worry about where they were going to sleep or being hungry.  Many of our current heroes have spent months living on the street; unable to get into the programs that would benefit them because they didn’t have the resources they needed. 

How can we possibly expect our veterans to return home after fighting for our freedoms only to continue the fight for basic necessities like food and shelter? While the programs available to them are wonderful, it takes time and a lot of work to complete.  When they return without a support system of friends or family, they have no one to help them navigate through the maze. 

In our world today, there are Veterans who went away to countries to fight for our freedom only to come home and continue the fight.  They fight for a place in society; an identity; a place to call home.  No Veteran should ever have to continue their fight after returning to their home soil.
