Our mission is simple – to end homelessness among U.S. Veterans. The Kline Homeless Veterans Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works in close cooperation with the Veterans Administration and other friendly organizations, such as Veterans Village, and is dedicated to providing a warm and safe refuge for homeless veterans and their families.
At Jewish War Veterans Post 64 NV (JWV), we believe that private and public partnerships are important to help us offer more services to our veterans. After we heard about Veterans Village and its mission, we believed the organization presented a better lifestyle for veterans and their families who need help. Veterans Village offers services and amenities including employment opportunities, housing and medical and mental health services.
The Edward Kline Memorial Homeless Veterans Fund runs a program to help find housing for homeless veterans and families. Currently, the program is offered for male veterans only. Through working with Veterans Village, this program would be expanded and offered to women and families as well.
We have been operating this program for several years and we currently assist nine veterans at a time over a period of 7-10 days, which equals approximately 30 veterans per month. In essence, we provide transitional housing for the veterans to get started with Veterans Administration. Our goal, with Veterans Village, is to expand the program to assist up to 60 veterans at a time.
We look forward to working with Veterans Village and the benefits our veterans will gain from this wonderful partnership.
President, Kline Fund
