Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit
We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.
Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin is committed to serving each and every Veteran that comes through their doors. They work to make a difference in the lives of at-risk Veteran households in every community across Wisconsin. Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin aims to assist homeless and at-risk veteran households in return for normalcy in life by providing food, clothing, shelter, and programming.
Veterans are a marginalized class of individuals whom many tend to forget about. The nonprofit organization has made it their mission to ensure Veterans are never forgotten about and receive the assistance they have rightfully earned.
Veterans Village, made up of 15 tiny homes, is designed for Veterans suffering from homelessness. The Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin’s residential program offers a wide array of resources for those residing in the village, including financial assistance, VA benefits representatives, Mental Health services, Bible studies and AA meetings for their residents.
The Veterans Marketplace offers food and supplies for Veterans and their families in need across Southeast Wisconsin. They serve over 450 Veterans and their families monthly.
The Veterans Village is always accepting donations of twin-sized mattresses, microwaves, new clothing (sizes M to 4XL), and gas/Amazon gift cards that are always welcomed by their residents.
The Veterans Marketplace always accepts food donations from the community. For those looking to donate non-perishable food after hours, they offer a donation bin outside of the marketplace at 1609 Yout St. The Veterans Marketplace hours are Tuesday through Thursday from noon until 4 p.m and serves all Veterans or the surviving spouses of Veterans.
An additional way to support Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin is by making a monetary donation.
This nonprofit is always accepting volunteers to assist with their marketplace store and warehouse as well.
They encourage people to “Be a Hero to a Hero.”
