Veterans On The Rise – dedicated to ending veteran homelessness in the DC metro area

The mission of Veterans on the Rise is to provide the resources and opportunities for each homeless or at-risk veteran to meet the personal and housing challenges they face in order to achieve maximum self-sufficiency.

Veterans on the Rise (VOTR) is a 501 c (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a holistic system of care to fight veteran homelessness in the Washington DC metroplex. VOTR believes that no military veteran should be homeless in the shadow of National monuments and memorials built to honor their service.

Veterans on the Rise utilizes a case management approach which addresses veteran needs holistically, providing supportive services from health and wellness, mental health, transportation, life skills, employment training to legal advice.  We offer our veterans comforting living environments, life enhancing activities,  and support as they readjust to their communities, regain their dignity, and rebalance their lives. Simply put, we empower veterans to save their own lives.

We ask you to join us, if you agree that we owe those men and women served, and are often forgotten upon leaving active duty and reserve statuses. You can contribute to this cause by providing: money, time, goods or services.

Your donation is tax-deductable to the extent allowed by law.
