Heroes Among Us
Take a look around your own local community and see if there is a need for helping homeless veterans. The odds are if you live in a city there are veterans who need help finding stable housing and other resources.
The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans held their Resource Fair at the Tribute Fest today. The Tribute Fest was organized to raise money and awareness for homeless Vets and to honor those who have served in the Military, Americans and Canadians along with those who are currently serving and their families.
The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) is an NGO that has been serving veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless across the state of Minnesota for over 25 years.
