How Trinity Veteran Helps Veterans

37,000 Veterans are homeless, 16.8 Veteran Suicides Daily, 284,000 Unemployed. We are on a mission to end the Veteran crisis’s, and with the help of generous supporters like you, we’re getting closer every day.

Our Approach

Our local community network donates almost all of the items and resources that our Trinity Veteran Centers need to execute our various rehabilitation programs. We are talking thousands of pounds of food a month, and much more!

We pick up, organize, and distribute the items weekly through our food pantry. The Patriot Club then funds our programs’ direct expenses. Together, it makes everything we do possible!

Implementation

We reach out to our network for resources we need like food, water, pillows, social activities, car repairs, misting fans, electronic can openers, health classes, you name it! For pantry items we pick up, organize, and distribute every week. For social and health programs we coordinate the execution of the event and provide transportation when needed.

Continuous improvement

To ensure that stabilization and rehabilitation is secure and constant we continuously ask the Veterans for feedback on what we’re doing and what they need. We take this feedback and work with our partners to expand our network of resources and implement programs that are centered around the Veterans needs and wants.

Networking

Maintaining and expanding our network is crucial to success, communities have the power to solve major issues if organizations work together. We are continually seeking to expand our community network to offer more resources to the Veterans and do our best to showcase our partner's efforts via social media and marketing.

We are result driven

Our team knows that improvement is always possible. We don’t care if we are right or wrong, we care if the Veterans are healing, stabilizing, and improving towards getting back on their feet and becoming self-sustainable. Our Trinity Veteran Centers help Veterans!

Trinity Veteran Centers

Learn about what our Trinity Veteran Centers do and how our programs impact Veterans.

Food Pantry: A roof over their head but no food, hygiene products, or water, what good is that? We leverage our network of community partners to pick up, organize, and distribute these essential items. Currently we feed 150 Veterans all day every day.

Community Partners donate thousands of pounds of food a month and The Patriot Club funds our direct expenses to operate the pantry.

Social Program: Sometimes the Veterans sit inside their homes for a month straight. We know this does not sound real, but its true. The Veterans are taken off the streets and put into complexes but that is just 1 step in the rehabilitation. Many of the Veterans have mental and physical disabilities that a roof over their head cannot solve.

Its no secret humans are naturally social beings, and that social aspect is apart of human life. But for the Veterans we serve being social is generally not a part of their life, and that is where our programs come in.

Fellowship program: Ever have a long conversation about life with a co-worker, friend, or even stranger? We bet that conversation made you feel a bond, and that is what our fellowship program does. We do our best to give the Veteran 1-on-1 time, inspiring value and positivity.

As stated above, a roof over the Veterans head is the first step but not the last. We started our charity by taking Veterans for 3-hour hikes and having deep meaningful conversations that led to major attitude improvements. It seems so simple, but these Veterans need positive support and love!

Health Program: Our health programs are designed based on health issues our Veterans face. Some examples are:

A large group of the Veterans at our Trinity Veteran Centers are diabetic but do not know how to live with diabetes, so we are creating a diabetic friendly portion of our food pantry.

Many Veterans go weeks or months without sleeping properly, so we partnered with community organizations to offer classes that enable better sleeping.

The Veterans with physical disabilities do not know how to become physically active, so we partnered with a local yoga instructor to offer yoga classes.

Kids Program: There are around 20 children that live at the housing we serve, and these children have been through a lot. We try to inspire a sense of community and belonging for these children through dedicated events like Truck or Treat, Slip n Slide, Nerf War, Pumpkin Carving, and much more. These events also have effects like family bonding, parent attitude improvement, and social skill development.

Why does Trinity Veteran work with local partners?

We believe that investing in local community involvement is the best way to create long-term impact. We plan on expanding our non-profit nationwide at a local level. Local communities share common problems but also have unique characteristics that they know best.

What is Trinity Veteran’s relationship with local partners?

Our Director of Programs communicates daily with partners and organizations to ensure our programs are successful. Without our community partners Trinity Veteran’s work would not be possible.

How are local partners defined?

We work with a variety of locally-based organizations. Some are non-profits, Veteran organizations, churches, social clubs, schools, etc. To us, if an organization or person wants to help us help Veterans, then we are all for it.

What does Trinity Veteran expect from local partners?

Our partners share our vision of ending the Veterans crisis’s in their local community. In addition to sharing our vision, our partners communicate with us how they can help and participate actively.
