Our Mission
To End Veteran Homelessness in Minnesota
Our Vision
To provide assistance throughout Minnesota to Veterans and their families who are homeless or experiencing other life crises leading to homelessness
Message from the Chief Operating Officer
I would like to take a moment to thank all our community partners, supporters, and Veterans that we are working with and serving in the community. Over the last year MACV has worked hard to scale our resources throughout the state to improve our regional point of service delivery and find new and innovative ways to serve our Veterans. Over the next year you will continue to see more efforts in building relationships and creating systems that allow our team to help serve Veterans who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless in Minnesota. While MACV builds on our capacity to support Veterans you may see new fundraising initiatives and volunteer opportunities that you may want to get involved in. I welcome your comments and feedback and invite you to join our mission of Ending Veteran Homelessness in Minnesota in any way you are able to. Please feel free to reach out to me directly so we can serve our Veterans.

Stephanie Stetler
I chose to become an employee at MACV because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of those who served our country. I have about four years of experience working with victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and/or homelessness. I recently graduated with my Associates Degree in Human Services from WITC- New Richmond where I did an internship at a CVSO office in Spooner, Wisconsin. My internship experience really encouraged me to continue my work with Veterans. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from UW- Stout. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors- hiking, fishing, hunting, or camping.

MACV thanks the Minnesota Masonic Charities and the Grand Lodge of Minnesota Masons for their incredible donation of $40,000 to help end Veteran homelessness in Minnesota.
