Social distancing means we need to increase our compassion and connection to our communities that are most vulnerable.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in Minnesota, we had identified 276 Veterans without a home. Changes to our “new normal” are causing several closures and restrictions that are creating additional barriers to these Veterans, their families, and hundreds of others who have served. Veterans and their families may be struggling to work or gain access to the resources they need. Our Veterans remain resilient, yet they and their families often live at the low end of financial security and continue to struggle to find or maintain safe housing.

In this time of uncertainty, MACV expects to see an increase in requests for our services. While it is responsible to remain physically distant at this time, we would like to show our Veterans that they continue to be an important part of our communities. We are asking our supporters to help us build emergency funding to provide for services that are not currently covered under grants. Services such as short-term rent and income supports for those temporarily laid off due to workplaces shutting down, or food and grocery delivery for Veterans who are unable to safely use public transit are both examples of ways to support our Veterans during this time.

You can help us ensure these Veterans keep their housing stable and have access to everyday necessities by providing a ready safety net for this period of need. Your donations provide these Veterans with the financial and case management support and a path to self-reliance. Please consider serving the Veterans who have served you.

Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to helping Minnesota Veterans since 1990.
