Our Community and Charities
HelpAVet MN (Tom McKenna/Tom@helpavetmn.com) - HelpAVet is simply an outreach tool intended to raise awareness of homeless veteran’s issues, and to organize our efforts in helping homeless veterans in the Twin Cities. Creating an atmosphere where veterans regain pride in themselves, through hard work and commitment, is the key to reducing veteran’s homelessness. Assisting veterans to rediscover their talents and abilities that made them effective airmen, sailors, soldiers, and Marines, provides hope for a productive future and is foundational for long term success.
