Originally called Alpha Omega Faith Homes until 1994, we were one of the first private nonprofit charitable organizations established in the U.S. that specialized in providing services for homeless veterans. Initial funding came from private donations and after recognizing the need for additional financial support, we established our bylaws in 1988, obtained a full charter from the State of Tennessee and received 501(c)(3) status from the IRS.
While in residence, each veteran receives counseling on both an individual and group basis. Our program consists of an integrated system of services developed to meet the specific needs of our veterans (food, clothing, housing, transportation, vocational assistance and rehabilitation assistance) and is administered by a staff comprised of over 30 trained professionals (certified peer counselors, licensed social workers, CNAs and RNs).
