S.E.R.V. Niagara’s mission is to S.E.R.V –
Support, Empower, Respect, Veterans and their familes.
Before veterans in need can fully benefit from therapeutic programs, skills training, or any other service, they have to have their basic human needs of food, clothing and shelter met. The “Basic Human Needs” build a strong foundation of trust upon which other services can lead lead our veteran heroes onto the path of self-sufficiency.
S.E.R.V. Niagara’s main areas of focus are:
- Scholarship funding
- Therapeutic programs for veterans and families
- Community outreach (food, clothes, hygiene items, etc.)
- Housing for men in Niagara County’s first veteran-exclusive therapeutic sober home
- Permanent supportive housing for veterans and their families in safe residential neighborhoods
Our housing solutions provide much-needed quality services and programs known to prevent relapse and homelessness, and we render them in a humane, compassionate and dignified manner.
Many of the overwhelming challenges our veterans face are:
- Family support
- Mental health illness
- Chronic homelessness
- PTSD and other traumas
- Transportation to appointments
- Combat-related and other injuries
- Unemployment or underemployment
- Other misfortunes
