Veterans Village Las Vegas keeps raising the bar when it comes to helping homeless U.S. Veterans find housing, jobs, food, clothing and medical and transportation services. The non-profit organization’s unique model, which relies on financial and material support from the private sector rather than government agencies, has drawn praise from state and federal lawmakers, as well as two U.S. Presidents.
