Our veterans served our country well and
deserve to be taken care of.
Make an impact. Honor a veteran.
When you give to LVS, you make a direct impact on the lives of homeless veterans living right here in the Greater Richmond area. Your support helps us provide crisis housing, case management, food, clothing and most importantly, permanent housing location and advocacy.
Every donation, no matter how big or small, goes a long way in helping us accomplish our mission of offering homeless veterans the care, resources and stability needed to rebuild their lives.
Thank you for considering a donation to Liberation Veteran Services.
– Jay Patrick, CEO
LVS Business Model
