SERVICE THROUGH ACTION
THE VET HUNTERS PROJECT P.O. BOX 3174 SOUTH EL MONTE CA, 91733 INFO@VETHUNTERS.ORG
THE VET HUNTERS PROJECT IS A 501 (C) 3 NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO PREVENTING AND ENDING HOMELESSNESS FOR ALL MILITARY VETERANS/FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUAL AMERICANS WE MEET. “SAVING OUR LOST, AT ANY COST”
VET HUNTERS IS A GRASS ROOTS MOVEMENT THAT WAS STARTED BY ONE SOLDIER WHO VOWED TO HONOR HIS FALLEN COMRADES, BY SERVING THE LIVING AND LEAVING NO VETERAN BEHIND. SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSIONS IN THE STREETS OF AMERICA WERE INITIATED AND ‘VET HUNTING,” WAS BORN. DURING V.H.P’S FIRST YEAR OF INCEPTION, HUNDREDS OF VETERANS HAVE BEEN ASSISTED ALL OVER THE U.S.. THE DEVELOPMENT OF EFFECTIVE OUTREACH AND WHAT WE CALL “VETWORKING,” WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN INTENSITY UNTIL THE HOMELESS EPIDEMIC IS DIMINISHED AND ULTIMATELY ENDED. THE WORDS HOMELESS AND VETERAN SHOULD NEVER GO TOGETHER! WHEN YOU THINK OF VET HUNTERS, THINK OF US AS BEING LIKE “E-HARMONY” OF HOMELESSNESS. WE CONNECT THE HOMELESS PERSON TO RESOURCES BY BRINGING THE THEM TO WHERE THE HOMELESS VETERAN’S LIVE! OUR OFFICE IS THE STREETS AND ANYWHERE A HOMELESS VETERAN MAY CALL HOME. WE TAKE THE WORD HOMELESS AWAY FROM VETERAN THROUGH ACTION. IF THE VETERAN LIVES UNDER A BRIDGE, YOU WILL FIND US THERE DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO BRING OUR HOMELESS HEROES, HOME! WE ARE NOT GOVERNMENT FUNDED ALLOWING US TO MEET THE NEEDS OF VETERANS QUICKLY. NO RED TAPE IS HOW WE OPERATE....  
V.H.P. ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN DO IN THE SERVICE TO OTHERS. NO MATTER OF YOUR LOCATION, AGE OR INCOME, YOU HAVE SOME RESOURCE, KNOWLEDGE, OR ABILITY THAT CAN BE USED TO HELP SOMEONE ELSE. V.H.P. REVOLVES AROUND THE IDEA THAT SOCIAL CHANGE STARTS AT INDIVIDUAL LEVEL AND THAT HELPING EVEN ONE PERSON CAN LEAD TO CHANGE IN AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY. RATHER THAN TO COMPLAIN, WE ARE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THE HOMELESS VETERAN ISSUE. WE ARE SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE WE GO BEYOND FEEDING OUR HOMELESS BROTHERS AND SISTERS. VET HUNTERS GIVE RESPECT, LOVE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOPE. WE WILL PARTNER WITH ANYONE ALIGNED WITH THE SAME GOALS AND OUTCOME. WE ARE THE VET HUNTERS..... WE BELIEVE WHEN IT IS A HOMELESS VETERAN ISSUE, IT IS AN AMERICA ISSUE, HOMELESS VETERANS ARE THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF AMERICA, EVERY TIME WE PROUDLY GET TO HOUSE OUR HOMELESS HEROES, WE HONOR ALL WHO SERVED, OUR FALLEN WARRIORS AND THEIR FAMILIES. WE ALSO BELIEVE TO END VETERAN HOMELESSNESS, WE MUST WORK 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK TILL THEY ALL COME HOME. WE LIVE IN A WORLD IN WHICH WE NEED TO SHARE RESPONSIBILITY. IT’S EASY TO SAY “ITS NOT MY CHILD, NOT MY COMMUNITY, NOT MY WORLD, NOT MY PROBLEM. THEN THERE ARE THOSE WHO SEE THE NEED AND RESPOND. I CONSIDER THOSE PEOPLE MY HEROES. - FRED ROGERS

V.H.P SEARCH & RESCUE
VET HUNTERS HAVE BEEN USING OUR PERSONAL VEHICLES TO ACCOMPLISH OUR SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSIONS. WE WISH OUR PERSONAL VEHICLES COULD KEEP UP WITH OUR 7 DAYS A WEEK OPERATION. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE EQUIPMENT THAT WE NEED TO MAXIMIZE OUR EFFORTS AND MISSION OF PREVENTING AND ENDING VETERAN HOMELESSNESS. WITH VANS WE COULD TRANSPORT VETERANS TO HOUSING, HOMELESS STAND DOWN EVENTS, APPOINTMENTS AND MUCH MORE. SINCE VET HUNTERS BRING RESOURCES AND SUPPLIES TO WHERE THE HOMELESS VETERAN LIVE, WE COULD RUN MOBIL OPERATION’S WITHIN THEIR COMMUNITIES. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF OUR WISH LIST FOR OUR SEARCH AND RESCUE EFFORTS..... THE ARTICLES BELOW, WILL GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW ALL THE DONATIONS ARE USED. HERE AT VET HUNTERS WE ARE HOMELESS STAND DOWN EVENT EXPERTS AND ARE ALWAYS PUTTING TOGETHER MILITARY EVENTS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES WITH OUR EAST COAST TO TEAM TO KEEP RAISING AWARENESS AND TO INCREASE OUR CORROBORATION WITH OTHERS TO KEEP PREVENTING AND ENDING VETERAN HOMELESSNESS.
