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.
During the month of November, in honor of Veterans Day, the Safeway Foundation raised funds to support veteran causes.
