Services
Many families and individuals come to HEP lacking access to everything from personal hygiene to medical care. With community partnerships and personalized case management, HEP is able to provide a variety of needed support services.

Veterans Assistance

According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, the rate of homelessness among veterans is double the rate of homelessness among the general population.

Veterans comprise one-fourth to one-fifth of the homeless population. Nearly 107,000 men and women who have served our Nation bravely are without homes to call their own.
