Homes For Healing Furniture Request

PURPOSE

Military Missions In Action (MMIA) assists veterans that have gone through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development VA Supportive Housing (HUD/ VASH) program or referred by another organization. These veterans were previously or are in stages of being chronically homeless. The VA places the veterans in apartments or homes that are under contract with the VA. However, the veterans go to their new homes with only the clothes on their backs. MMIA receives donations of furniture and household goods to deliver to these veterans free of charge in efforts to have the best start possible.

 

PROCEDURES

MMIA receives emails and phone calls from social workers or veterans with the request for furniture and household goods. There is a standard sheet that needs to be filled out for each veteran (form enclosed). Along with this form, MMIA requires the veteran’s DD-214 or veteran ID.

Veteran must fill out and sign a Liability Release and Express Assumption of Risk form and return it with other required documentation. If the veteran has children that live with him/ her, please also enclose verification. This can include a verification letter from the Veterans Affairs office, birth certificate, report card with current address from child’s school, or other documentation proving that the children do live in the same home. MMIA does not take requests from veteran family members. If the Veteran is receiving any type of disability, please also enclose verification. This can include a copy of a disability verification letter from the Veterans Affairs office, Social Security Disability Benefits documentation, or a copy of a handicapped license.

Once the veteran has been verified, he/she is put on a list to receive furniture and household goods. Delivery times to receive items will depend on donations received, volunteer schedules, and number of veterans on the delivery list. MMIA also does NOT accept special requests such as certain colored curtains, bedding, material of couches, etc. MMIA is only able to give items that are on the specified list.

 

The Homes for Healing Program Manager will contact the veteran to schedule a date and time for furniture delivery. A veteran may only request furniture and household goods once in his or her lifetime. A veteran cannot make a future request for additional items due to MMIA’s funding, donations and the amount of veterans’ requests each day.  

 

Please note that by accepting the furniture delivery, you consent to participate in a follow-up survey conducted by an MMIA representative by phone, email, text, or questionnaire sent through the mail. The purpose of the survey is to ensure that MMIA is meeting the needs of our veterans in a professional and timely manner.

 

Respectfully,
