NVHS MISSION

To Eliminate Homelessness Among Veterans in Central Florida.


Founded in 2008, NVHS is a community based organization formed by veterans to locate and assist the more than 4,500 homeless veterans living in the parks, woods, and streets of Central Florida off the streets permanently. What makes NVHS truly unique is the fact that we tackle homelessness directly where it thrives...on the streets of our community. Unlike every other homeless service provider in the State of Florida, who wait patiently for homeless clients to know they exist and find their office, we go out constantly and persistently to find our clients where they live, provide basic needs to insure their survival and build rapport, then connect them to any community organization that offers a service beneficial to them rapidly moving from homeless to housed.
