MMIA creates Homeless Veterans Standdown (HVSD) Kits from donated supplies and we, along with volunteer groups or companies, assemble the kits into backpacks for Veterans living on the street.
Our Executive Director & Founder, Mike Dorman, was once asked, "How do you know what homeless Veterans need"? To answer that question, Mike spent four days and nights on the streets of Jacksonville, NC. Through this experience, he learned exactly what things he and the homeless Veterans, he spent those days with, needed most. Based on that these are the items we put into our HVSD kits, with plastic baggies being the prime need. These help those living on the streets to keep their belongings dry.
