Founded and run by veterans, MHVI's mission is to help homeless and at-risk veterans reach and maintain their highest levels of independence. We offer unique programs to fill the gaps and don't duplicate what others do, and cooperate with the Veterans Administration, Wis. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, County Veterans Service Officers, and other non-profit agencies.
Since 2008 we have helped more than 2,000 veterans and their famililes in southeastern Wisconsin to obtain benefits, housing, health care, furniture, household goods, food, clothing, transporation, toiletries and other necessities.
Executive Director Kirsten Sobieski and Board President Dan Driscoll honor Ryan Janscha of the jazz group J. Ryan Trio. Every dollar raised by the group from album sales and shows benefits MHVI. As of Sept. 2016 that amounted to over $9000. Thank you!FULL DETAILS & SPONSORS
