One in five homeless adults is a veteran

What would life be like to never know where the next meal is coming from or where your next bed might be? What if you desperately wanted to earn a living but your skills weren't recognized in the corporate world? These are the challenges facing tens of thousands of homeless veterans every day. They have no one to turn to, so they go to the streets. The cycle of unemployment frequently begins with a lack of necessary job-readiness skills. In an effort to break this cycle, Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio provides job-readiness and training services to help veterans reach self-sufficiency through long-term employment. All of our programs are changing lives with the support of neighbors like you. Keep reading or click here to find out how you can donate your vehicle in 75 Ohio counties, including cities like Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and support veterans in need.

Patriot Packaging provides employment 

Patriot Packaging is a social initiative and supportive employment program striving to provide constructive, realistic job development opportunities for veterans. In the program, manufacturers contract with Patriot Packaging for skilled jobs such as assembly, packaging and inspection. The four-phase program helps veterans take pride in their work and gain the skills they need in order to move into long-term, competitive employment. 

How to donate your vehicle to Volunteers of America 

These critical programs need help from neighbors like you to continue providing services to those in need. By donating your car, truck, motorcycle, boat or RV to Volunteers of America, you're giving someone a new shot at life.

Every tax-deductible car donation to Volunteers of America helps substantially in allowing us to achieve our fundraising goals every year in all of the Ohio communities we serve, like Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus.
