VETS LIVES MATTER NOW-THE MOVEMENT
Five Pillars of Focus
Vets Lives Matter NOW-The Movement:
Vets Lives Matter NOW, in demonstration of our value, appreciate and love for Veterans, we want to hear from you. We are building platforms where you’ll be able to:
- Interact with us and with one another.
- Post pictures, videos and stories about your favorite veteran.
- Share with the world what their service means to you.
- Help others to learn so that their sacrifices will be honored, celebrated and never forgotten.
You are Not Invisible, NOW we see you
At Vets Lives Matter NOW, we believe Veterans should be treated with utmost appreciation and respect not abuse and neglect. We are advocating for a cultural shift in the way Veterans are treated when seeking care.
Stay connected for the ability to post your stories (good, bad and ugly) of the treatment you receive, and the interactions experienced. We want to reinforce those who are getting it right, and, be proactive with measures of remedy when needed. Together, we can share best and worst practices to advocate for change in throughout the care community.
“The Mission Act allows veterans who have to drive more than 30 minutes to a VA hospital or who have to wait more than 20 days for an appointment to seek medical care from a private health provider in the approved community care network. Since June 6, 2019, the Act also allows veterans to visit urgent care units in the network of more than 5,000 facilities nationwide.”
Vets Lives Matter Now has set a goal to encourage 20,000 more doctors to register with Tri-Care.
Here, we will feature bios of community care doctors detailing why they chose to service the veteran community and why they think it is important for others to join the network.
Homeless Female Veterans
Women veterans are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population in the United States. One out every 10 homeless veterans, under the age of 45, is now a woman. The risk of women veterans becoming homeless is 4X greater than a male veteran. A hard, heartbreaking fact: Homeless female veterans with little or no financial security for childcare can end up losing their children to protective services.
The goal of Genesis Joy House Homeless Shelter, Inc (Genesis) is to end chronic homelessness among female veterans in our communities. Achieving this goal is complex and requires a holistic approach that address the “total veteran” and her needs.
Genesis Joy House is Vets Lives Matter Now’s flagship initiative. Founder, Executive Director, Margaret Flowers is relentless in her passion and vision to open Georgia’s first comprehensive transitional housing facility for veteran homeless women.
To bring the vision to fruition, Genesis Joy House seeks corporate partners, in-kind and monetary contributions and volunteers with a heart to help get the women “out of the woods” and into the warmth of Genesis, where they can truly begin…again.
