DID YOU KNOW...
More than *100,000 veterans are homeless on any given night in America, or that *35 veterans, (or more), are losing the battle to mental health by suicide in our country daily. *Per recent data research
Many times, we lose our veterans to mental health crises and preventable situations that only require a small investment into their lives.
One of our missions, throughout American communities, is to increase suicide prevention awareness while also gaining wider access to mental health services, benefits and housing programs for our fellow veterans.
Spotlighting these challenges publicly is a step toward accomplishing our mission.
Through this tournament, and similar public events, we are able to mobilize our charitable partners and sponsors to gather the necessary financial and in-kind resources to make an impact for our heroes.
THE MISSION: The US Veterans Hall of Fame desires to continue providing services to our veterans, many of which are critical and lifesaving measures.
Here are some examples of services that our network provides and that are continually needed for our veterans:
One therapy session averages $125 per hour
the average number of therapy assistance calls in the US has doubled
among the veteran population over the course of the pandemic.
Single utility needs have averaged between $100 to $200
everyday in America, a veteran in most major cities has a utility
disconnected due to limited income and the inability to pay a bill.
It is also estimated that 581,000 veterans are unemployed or one
paycheck away from losing their homes, vehicle or other properties.
Housing assistance needs range from $600 to $1000 monthly
nationwide we have an estimated 50,000 homeless veterans any given
night in America. Beyond providing rental or mortgage assistance,
(where the V.A. cannot assist the need), the US Veterans Hall of Fame
has plans to build safe, modern and affordable housing structures
through a partnership with Axhoj Enterprises that veterans could afford
and would be proud to call home.
Career advancement training averages $250 - $1000
An educational course or trade school training regimen could enhance a veteran's paycheck, so that she or he can provide for their families at a
higher and more secure level.
Community attachment (various)
We also provide community events and outreach functions to attach
fellow veterans to their respective communities, as well as
communities that may be in need of our skillsets. So, whether that be a
day organizing and distributing food boxes to families in need or a
mission to assist the nation after a hurricane, our veterans get an
opportunity to continue to serve the nation that they love.
Any one of the above services, if ready in advance, could save a veteran's life.
