New England Center for Homeless Veterans

New England Center for Homeless Veterans is located downtown Boston, at 17 Court Street.

Their Mission
…extend a helping hand to homeless men and women veterans who are addressing the challenges of:

  • addiction
  • trauma
  • severe and persistent mental illness, and/or
  • unemployment

and who will commit themselves to sobriety, non-violence, and working for personal change. We are recognized as one of the most effective private veteran’s transition programs in the country.

We as Veterans are one of the largest homeless groups in America today.  And as Veterans we all believe very strongly about “being left behind”, as Vietnam Veterans we will not turn our backs on our Brothers and Sisters no matter what.  Any Veteran that needs help, whether it be with PTSD, homelessness, being incarcerated, Agent Orange or whatever, is a Vet that can know, someone is looking out for them.

I urge all VVA members and ALL Veterans everywhere to help out whenever you can.  Help our comrades that are homeless.  Support the NECHV any way you can.  Visit the NECHV webpage, make a donation, contact your State and Federal Representatives and see what you can do to support homeless Veterans.  Let these guys know that “we got their backs…at home”!

I would also like to issue a very large “THANK YOU!” to the staff at NECHV, for being there, for supporting me, feeding me and keeping me warm and dry during a very cold and dark time in my life.  I will never forget you.
