Some of you who follow my Give Back to Veterans Day campaign may wonder how you can help homeless veterans if you encounter them. Please tell them about the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training, Inc. (MCVET) in Baltimore, Maryland. I took a tour of it last week.
Help is available through the nonprofit. Services include: case management, meals, tuition instance, benefits assistance and recreational activities. Emergency, transitional, and single room occupancy options are available services for homeless men and women who are veterans. They even have a day drop-in center where homeless veterans can receive crisis intervention counseling, take showers, obtain water and fresh clothes. MCVET is a national residential and support program where veterans help veterans. It was also founded by veterans!
MCVET can provide assistance with coordinating a veteran's transportation to Baltimore. Help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please call 1-410-576-9626 X244 (Intake). MCVET also wants to know the names of human service organizations in your hometown who serve the homeless. Call 410-576-9626 ext. 235 with any information so MCVET can make sure they know about their services. Please visit www.mcvet.org for more information.
I decided to donate the majority of my donations from my giving holiday for Christmas to MCVET. I purchased a new computer for homeless veterans who live there to use so that another work station can be set up. I am currently buying hygiene products and items such as socks, thermals, and gloves. Please donate to my fundraiser if you can help me to thank veterans in need. This is my first veteran Christmas celebration and I want to make Give Back to Veterans Day 2 extra special. My GoFundMe link is
