Did you know it's National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week?


National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. As we give thanks for what we have, we also have the opportunity to share with those in need.


The VMC is committed to Ending Veteran Homelessness in Philadelphia... and we will not stop there! We are also focused on sustainability and Ending Veteran Homelessness in Delaware, New Jersey, and the rest of Pennsylvania.

...and as we connect heroes with housing, we need your support! 


Check out our "wish list" below for our top-needed items, or give securely online here!:

  • Gift cards for Gas/Groceries, SEPTA Tokens/TransPasses, etc
  • laundry basket / hangers

"I am the wife of a Viet Nam Veteran. My husband started going to PVMSEC 10 years ago for help. No mere words could ever express how much his life and in turn our family life has changed for the better in those years. I am and always will be grateful for the wonderful care he has received at the Philadelphia Veterans Multi-Service Center & Education Center."
