To take the needed services, supplies, and support out on the streets, into the camps, to whatever location a veteran may be, so that he or she is not left behind.
To raise awareness of the problems facing veterans who may be homeless, needy, or at risk and in need of services, assistance, or support.
The VTAB board was formed in 2010 out of the desire to repay our country's debt to its veterans. It is the intent of VTAB to provide temporary housing and brotherhood for veterans while they transition from homelessness and/or drug dependency back to the lifestyle of self-respect and self-reliance that was ensured for us all by their military service.
The goals of VTAB are as follows:
1. Educate the public on the needs of homeless veterans
2. To construct or support a facility to house veterans
3. Apply for grants to help fund housing
4. Seek local support from churches and communities
5. Coordinate with surrounding counties to initiate communication and ask for their cooperation
6. Establish relationships with surrounding counties to determine housing needs for homeless veterans
7. Advocate for the homeless
In an effort to fulfill the goals of VTAB, the group is the host agency for the Foothills Veteran Stand Down and the Unifour Veterans Helping Veterans. VTAB serves the community in addressing the 10 year plan to end homelessness, promotes awareness, and encourages dialogue relating to homeless and at risk veterans.
