Friends for Vets Charity

 
 

In the aftermath of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, the population of returning Veterans with substance abuse and mental health disorders is growing dramatically. Despite comprehensive programs sponsored by the VANJ, homeless Veterans have significant difficulty with finding and maintaining employment.

 

Helping Veterans break this cycle of homelessness requires the community to raise resources and promote awareness of the multiplicity of problems that they face. Friends for Vets is a charity of MTI IBD Inc. that serves this cause. Our Friends volunteer at MTI’s social enterprises, help fundraise, organize special events, assist with our annual gala, and develop job placements for our Veterans.
