Veterans Care at City Mission

They served us.  Now let’s serve them.  City Mission’s goal is to do just that – by providing an environment that allows veterans to work together, to grow and to heal, thus leading them back to independent living while in the safety of a serene, Christ-centered environment. We want to assist even more veterans and greatly improve their chances of a successful transition to independence.

That is the reason City Mission built a new 22-bed shelter for homeless veterans, The Crabtree – Kovacicek Veterans House.

Returning Home

When Veterans return home, too many of them find returning to civilian life is even more challenging than being on active duty. Over 40,000 veterans are homeless and 22% commit suicide every day.

Research shows that veterans recover best when they are in fellowship with other veterans. City Mission veteran residents participate in the Life Recovery Program designed for veterans’ specific needs and also receive care from local veterans’ services.
