Member Organization Spotlight 

The mission of Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative (MHVI) is to find homeless and at-risk veterans and provide the services they need to reach and maintain their highest level of independence.

MHVI does this by providing furniture and household items along with clothing and food to veterans leaving the VA and CVI programs and moving into their first apartments. They also do early morning outreach to find homeless vets where they sleep, and at daytime shelters, like Repairers of the Breach, and help them qualify for benefits and health care, find housing, provide clothing, transportation and other needs.

MHVI runs an emergency food pantry for veterans in short-term crises who cannot access other sources.In the last six years MHVI has helped more than 1,300 homeless and at-risk veterans.
