Can you imagine being a single mom with two children as well as an honorably discharged veteran - and homeless?

That's unfortunately what happened to Melissa and her two kids.

In her own words, Melissa explains how Volunteers of America Greater Los Angeles' Blue Butterfly Village, a two bedroom townhouse community for formerly homeless families, turned their lives around.

Memorial Day – it’s so much more than a three-day weekend.

This year, you can honor our nation’s fallen by supporting the thousands of veterans who need our help right now.

Take the pledge to #MakeMemorialDayCount and give the veterans in your life the support they need to live their lives to the fullest.

We understand that homelessness is not a condition that is fixed simply by providing a home.

Many people need housing that pairs shelter with supportive services over the long-term to rebuild their lives.

Learn how we help accomplish this:
Over 670,000 Americans are homeless. More than 46 million Americans live in poverty and go hungry every night. Learn how Volunteers of America helps end homelessness.

Shot on location near Volunteers of America Los Angeles, this was not staged and shows exactly why we do what we do.

Karen was a homeless veteran - two words that should never go together.

“I really just didn’t know what I was going to do. Thank God Volunteers of America did.”

You can help more veterans like Karen. #MakeMemorialDayCount

Watch Mike Rabinowitz, a classically trained opera singer and full-time bus driver, regale senior citizens with opera performances.

“We love to get on the bus with him — it's entertainment,” longtime Seabrook resident Audrey Grogan told the Asbury Park Press.

“On the longer trips it's even better. It's opera, we get modern stuff too, and he takes requests from some of the girls.”

“This has been the most gratifying gig I've ever had," says Rabinowitz.

Older Americans Month is a not only an opportunity to celebrate the many ways seniors contribute to our lives, but also a time to grow awareness around key senior issues.

Did you know that the number of homeless Vietnam-era veterans is greater than the number of service persons who died during that war?

The need for support for returned veterans couldn’t be greater – and you can make a critical difference in their lives this Memorial Day. Together, we can #MakeMemorialDayCount. http://buff.ly/1Tmml6e

Did you know that May is Older Americans Month? Did you also know that the 85 and older group is the fastest growing segment of the population?

At Volunteers of America, our services and programs promote health and independence for the elderly and we proudly honor them this month as we do all year long. http://buff.ly/23ORvG2

Helping People in Need Since 1896
Introduction
Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit, faith-based organization dedicated to helping those in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential.

Through thousands of human service programs, including housing and healthcare, Volunteers of America touches the lives of more than 2 million people in over 400 communities in 48 states each year. Since 1896, our ministry of service has supported and empowered America's most vulnerable groups, including veterans, at-risk youth, the frail elderly, men and women returning from prison, homeless individuals and families, people with disabilities, and those recovering from addictions. Our work touches the mind, body, heart — and ultimately the spirit — of those we serve, integrating our deep compassion with highly effective programs and services.
