Welcome to Operation Renewed Hope Foundation ~ Ending Homelessness Among Veterans
Operation Renewed Hope Foundation (ORHF) is a charitable 501(c)3 Veteran-led organization headquartered in Alexandria, VA. Our mission is to provide quality housing and supportive services to Veterans experiencing homelessness. There are approximately 58,000 Veterans living in transitional shelters or on the streets. These Veterans served our great country and preserved our freedom. ORHF and its 30+ member team are determined to help these men and women secure homes for themselves and their family members. Since inception, December 2011, we assisted over 250 Veterans, raised in excess of $300K and provided $100K in interest-free loans. We found them suitable homes to end their cycle of homelessness or prevented them from becoming homeless. Veterans also receive resources such as transportation, donated furniture and household items, dental appointments, donated business attire and employment networking.
ORHF works with the Department of Veterans Affairs and fully supports their goal of ending Veteran homelessness by 2015. General Shinseki stated “Our Homeless Veterans are counting on us to bring urgency to this fight.” Please join us in this fight.
Operation Renewed Hope Foundation Supports the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Initiative
President Obama and I are personally committed to ending homelessness among Veterans within the next five years. I learned long ago that there are never any absolutes in life, and a goal of zero homeless Veterans sure sounds like an absolute. But unless we set ambitious targets for ourselves, we would not be giving this our very best efforts. No one who has served this Nation as Veterans should ever be living on the streets.
Eric Shinseki is a retired Army four star general. He currently serves as the Secretary of Veterans Affairs. He has taken decisive action to end Veteran Homelessness by the year 2015. Operation Renewed Hope Foundation fully supports General Shinseki’s commitment in helping our Nation’s homeless Veterans and is completely dedicated to the mission of ending homelessness among them.
