RECLAIM LIVES. REVITALIZE FUTURES.
Created by Vietnam veteran Leslie Lightfoot, Veteran Homestead Inc., is an independent, non-profit organization that provides housing, rehabilitation and care to U.S. Armed Services Veterans from across the nation who are elderly, disabled or diagnosed with medical or mental illness issues, or veterans with substance abuse issues. With six unique facilities in New England and Puerto Rico, our team of credentialed professionals serve those who have served in our armed forces, with compassion and dedication without regard to race, religion, or sexual orientation. All Veteran Homestead programs are drug and alcohol free.
Donate and help support the veterans in our programs as they reclaim their lives and revitalize
their futures. No amount is too small.
Volunteer at our events, sponsor a veteran or one of our farm animals, visit our vets in hospice, knit us some scarves and/or help us spread the word on social media.
