Thunderbirds Charities generously awarded $100,000 for U.S.VETS – Phoenix for renovations in their new location. U.S.VETS – Phoenix has proudly served homeless, at-risk, and underserved veterans for nearly 20 years. As the largest nonprofit exclusively dedicated to veterans in Maricopa County and the United States, U.S.VETS provides case management, mental health counseling, career development, meals, and housing. Today, our programs serve more than 180 veterans daily. With the current leased property up for sale, U.S.VETS will be purchasing a new home to relocate to and expand the critical services and housing veterans deserve. With support from Thunderbirds Charities, U.S.VETS – Phoenix’s new home will serve as a therapeutic, residential community that provides veterans the tools they need to regain their dignity and build a stronger future.
Michelle Jameson, Executive Director says, “We are so grateful for Thunderbirds Charities’ long term support. They have been friends of ours for years and when we needed help with this move, they generously stepped up.”
