No Hero Left Behind

Let's End Veteran Homelessness...


President Harry S. Truman said, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid.”  On Veterans Day we remember those who made that choice to serve the rest of us, and it is an opportunity to serve them when they turn to us in need.

With your help, the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans is working to repay the debt to our nation’s veterans, and to ensure that we leave No Hero Behind.

Your generosity allows us to continue the critical work of helping 400 homeless and at-risk veterans and  their family members across seven Illinois counties to rebuild their lives each year.  Because of your support, veterans obtain housing, recover from mental health and substance abuse issues, secure jobs, access medical care, and so much more!  As we remember and honor our heroes this Veterans Day, please consider giving the gift of hope and opportunity to veterans who are struggling to reach self-sufficiency.

Your Veterans Day gift will be generously matched by our partner, The Greer Foundation, while funds are available.

As of December 20th - due to the generosity of our donors, we have met the matching gift! $18,000 was donated and will be match dollar for dollar by the Greer Foundation. Thank you!! We could not have done it without your help! Even though we have reached the match goal, your donations are still needed to allow MSHV to continue to meet the needs of our homeless and at-risk veterans.
