The Hone of the Brave in Milford, Delaware offers room and board, as well as supportive services, to homeless veterans. They are given training and encouragement to find employment, with the ultimate goal of self-sufficiency. When they leave, they are supplied with many of the necessary items to furnish their new dwelling.
We have delivered an evening meal to the Men’s Home of the Brave each month for the past several years. Members contribute different components (main course, starch, vegetable, rolls, salad, beverages dessert) and several of us serve the food and join the group for dinner.
A new Women’s Home of the Brave has been constructed nearby and we are looking forward to identifying how best to serve this group of veterans as well.
