While hoping to prepare our church to effectively understand and celebrate the meaning and importance of Veterans Day 2023, the Second Springers found ourselves teaming up with Beds4Vets.
Too many homeless vets, despite having the will to get back on their feet, do not know what to do, or whom to turn to. When they think they have finally found a way out through a government program that gets them into a house and off the street, they quickly learn that in a house is all it does. No power, no heat, no food, no shower curtain, no bed, for them or their spouse, or children.  How can they prepare for a job interview?
Sadly, many come to the realization that they were better off homeless and return to the streets where shelter is hap-hazard, but other needs may still have a hope of being met.
Beds4Vets, realized these basic needs were intentionally going unmet, the needs that would help keep the vets and their families under a roof. So they stepped in and began helping one family at a time.  This organization is 100% volunteer. Not one person derives a salary, NOT ONE PENNY!!! However, the need is great. They have need of volunteers of all abilities and skillsets.
If you would like to join our group, or work directly through Beds4Vets, you can reach out to us, or go to Beds4vets directly. If you can't get directly involved, please PRAY about donating.

Matthew 25:40 King James Version

Honoring Service and Sacrifice
One Home at a Time

Our mission is to help veterans and their families permanently transition from homelessness by providing the basic furnishings to transform an empty apartment into a home.

In the United States, veteran homelessness has been a systemic issue for generations and will only increase with so many veterans returning from military engagements abroad and unable to assimilate back into society. As part of a public/private partnership, Beds4Vets coordinates with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The VA provides one-on-one counseling with veterans to address the causes of their homelessness.

HUD helps homeless veterans find housing.

Beds4Vets provides basic furnishings to the veterans to make these living spaces functional and comfortable.
