"Welcome a Veteran"
Newly-housed veterans will receive a Welcome Basket and a Move-In Kit from a friendly visitor as a welcome to their new home and community.
Currently there are 8,800 homeless individuals and families in San Diego, many of whom are veterans. Public initiatives are tackling the challenge of finding employment, providing social support and developing affordable housing. We have our part to play in this important outreach to veterans. The church has the opportunity to provide move-in kits (including furniture, bedding, kitchen supplies, cleaning and personal care items) and to visit newly-housed veterans to establish a friendly helping hand of support to encourage a successful transition to their new home and community.
Solana Beach Presbyterian Church, in conjunction with other local churches and Interfaith Community Services, has begun an initiative to provide these welcome kits and friendship connections to as many veterans as possible.
Please help warm up the new home of a veteran.
