  • IN THE NEWS: For many returning veterans, despair can lead to homelessness

    KSNV (Las Vegas) recently joined the U.S.VETS – Las Vegas outreach team as they offered help to homeless veterans. Nearly 900 homeless veterans live on the streets of southern Nevada – a number both shocking and heart breaking. Many suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and other stresses of combat. For 10 years, U.S. veteran Deon Derby has been pounding the pavement with U.S. Vets, a non-profit group that offers housing, and support for those who served. The homeless camps dotting empty lots throughout the valley are where veteran Deon Derby spends much of his time searching for military veterans who may have slipped through the cracks… Click here for the rest of the story and to watch the video.

    U.S.VETS – Las Vegas and partnering agencies will host the 11th annual Veterans Stand Down on March 19 & 20, 2014 from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

The Veterans Stand Down brings the community into the solution, gives hope to homeless and at-risk veterans, offers them a temporary respite, and provides information and services that can help them connect to much-needed services. More than 120 service providers will be represented at the event comprised of local nonprofits, veteran service organizations, the VA Medical Center of Southern Nevada, legal Courts, and many more.  Staff members from the offices of the Nevada Congressional Delegation will also participate in the event to assist veterans in obtaining their military records.
