Our goal is to offer a successful transition of low-income and/or homeless veterans by providing emergency and supportive housing, food, health services, occupational training skills and placement assistance, financial literacy, entrepreneurship training, legal aid and case management support.

According to the HUD/VA supplemental report, veterans are fifty percent more likely to become homeless compared to all Americans, and the risk is even greater among veterans living in poverty and minority veterans.  Nearly half of homeless veterans were located in California, Texas, New York and Florida, while only 28 percent of all veterans were located in those same four states.  Poverty Solutions strongly encourages education, self-improvement, self-confidence, self-sufficiency, self-respect, personal responsibility, money management and work ethics while discouraging illegal activities and self-destructive behaviors through our Divest Poverty program.

Employment and Education

Poverty Solutions, Inc. provides assistance to veterans in meeting their career, education and counseling goals through our GED-2-College Program and Divest Poverty workshops.  Attending our Divest Poverty workshops will allow participants to receive occupational training skills, placement assistance and basic necessary skills needed to become successful citizens of our society.
