Spread The Word And Help A Homeless Veteran
As we honor our veterans, please bear in mind those among them that are without stable housing. They may be “couch surfing”, living out of their car, or staying in an RV or garage. They may even be on the streets or in encampments. SHELTER, Inc. is here to help connect veterans with housing through SSVF (Supportive Services to Veteran Families) and to employment through HVRP (Homeless Veteran Reintegration Program). We will also assist with referrals to additional resources. Please help us reach veterans in need by sharing this flyer
at your local bulletin board, house of worship, or anywhere you may volunteer this holiday season, so they can be connected to these additional resources. We are able to assist veterans in Contra Costa, Alameda and Solano Counties.

Lights dedicated by gifts of at least $30 will provide the option to memorialize/honor loved ones in the book of names and have their name(s) read at the tree lighting ceremony of choice.
