The H.A.V.E. Project
Helping Assist Veterans Everyday
The H.A.V.E. Project (Helping Assist Veterans Everyday) is a 501-C-3 nonprofit organization that was founded in January 2018 to help local Western New York veterans by collecting donations of used assistive/mobility devices and distributing them at no cost to local veterans and their families. The H.A.V.E. Project also reaches homeless veterans through food drives and toiletries drive and strives to showcase the positive influence veterans have in society through varies social media platforms (podcasts, Facebook, Instagram, etc.).
The H.A.V.E. Project establishes local donation centers at physical therapy clinics and local organizations to accept donations and distributes the items to individual veterans (sending requests) or through local distributions sites (WNY Veterans Housing Coalition inc., Lion's Club, VA Healthcare for homeless Buffalo, etc.).
The H.A.V.E Project also hosts a national podcast showcasing the positive influence veterans have in society. The podcast series bridges the gap between the veteran community and the community at-large through upbeat interviews and in-depth conversations with veterans. The episodes are found on PodBean.com, Apple podcast app and Spotify ("the haveproject's podcast).
The H.A.V.E. Project hosts annual summer outdoor concerts to gather food for local homeless veteran organizations. The H.A.V.E. Project also empowers local companies to help local homeless veteran organizations by sponsoring holiday toiletries drives which enables the local businesses to reach veterans they normally cannot help.
Making A Difference in the Community
Helping local Veterans and their families at no cost
With this initiative, our goal is to help supply mobility/assistive devices (and some medical equipment) for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered (by the donations we get out to Veterans and their families). Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.
