Having faced their struggles head on, our veteran clients come to us ready to re-enter society with a renewed purpose. A safe and secure home is the first step to making this goal possible; however, the number of veterans we are able to help is limited by the number of homes we have available. With your financial contribution, we can purchase additional properties and to continue our mission. Our mission has always been and will continue to be Helping Veterans with their Base Camp needs.
Veterans experiencing homelessness remains a mounting concern in South Carolina. In fact, the younger veterans of recent conflicts like Iraq and Afghanistan, homelessness is climbing rapidly.
Community support will help enable Palmetto State Base Camp to expand our inventory of housing and services, making it possible for more homeless veterans to find stability and support.
Over the course of the year, approximately 3,933 veterans experience homelessness daily.
United States Census Bureau estimates that as many as 49,865 homeless people are veterans within the US. Of these, 703 live within South Carolina.
