About Us

This site used to be for the veterans. But now, it’s more suitable about sharing information about the elderly, senior and aging adults.

Historically, the Veterans Assistance Foundation (VAF) is a 501 (c)(3), nonprofit, tax exempt corporation. It was established January 1994 to operate transitional housing programs for military veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The VAF is comprised of veterans who are nationally recognized as experts on the issues of homelessness among veterans and are dedicated to veterans advocacy. The VAF currently operates three of these programs throughout the State of Wisconsinc and has also branched out into the State of California. (www.cavaf.org) VAF provide supportive services and transitional housing for veterans from all over the United States. For more information on the programs in Wisconsin, contact vafed@veteransassistance.org. You may also contact us at (877) 823-9433 or (608) 372-1280 to make contact or referrals for admission.

To operate programs designed to assist homeless or at risk of becoming homeless veterans maintain or improve their status in society by providing a safe and secure environment through which they can access a wide array of human services. The focus of these programs is to assist homeless veterans with the services that have prevented them from becoming re-established in their communities.

It is the focus of the VAF to: “Transition homeless veterans (or those veterans at risk of becoming homeless) into society’s mainstream. This will be done by assisting them to obtain meaningful employment and subsequently – safe, decent, and sanitary housing.” Our programs do not provide emergency shelter.
