U.S.VETS – Washington D.C. has provided permanent housing to veterans since 2003. In February 2015, a newly-renovated facility opened which serves 85 veterans daily, and also provides employment assistance and housing support to veterans and their families.

U.S.VETS – Washington D.C. was awarded the prestigious Peter Dougherty Award for Excellence in Supportive Housing for Homeless Veterans at the 2015 National Coalition for Homeless Veterans annual conference.

Holiday Drive
Each year generous donors and organizations volunteer to buy Christmas and Holiday gifts for our veterans. We ask our Secret Santa’s to spend between $50- $100 per gift.

Veterans are starting to submit their requests, with the goal to have them in by November 25, so your can take advantage of Black Friday sales. The list will remain open until December 17 as new veterans come into the program everyday.

Gifts are to be delivered to U.S.VETS Administrative Offices by Tuesday, December 18th. Gifts maybe wrapped with the veteran’s name attached or unwrapped and Santa’s elves will wrap them.
