About us

Who We Are

               Veteran founded and operated

After many years of working with active duty, reserves, and veterans (homeless and disabled), we have been fortunate to experience the multitude of caring for these individuals.  We see that there is a need and when we opened our hands, it gave encouragement to the homeless.  This homeless crisis isn't over just because we want it to be.  It takes a lot of time, money, and hands on work to alleviate their suffering.

Events

         Keep checking back for future events

South Mountain Vetus

 

We are a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit organization aimed to provide humanitarian services, assistance, and training to homeless and disabled veterans and their families.  Our goal is to assist these individuals with acquiring emergency shelter and food, access to specialized health care and mainstream services, obtaining specialized training for future employment, and equip them to be self-sufficient and regain their confidence within society.  

 

Our desire is to bring hope back to the homeless.  By partnering with like minded organizations, we can end veteran homelessness.  We don't accept that homelessness is something that cannot be solved.  Help us give them a safe place, a clean bed, and a warm meal.

Services

              Shelter, food, clothing, training

Initially we are working with the local homeless to give them a warm meal and clothes.  Not all homeless want a permanent place to live and we understand that.  We are working to guide them down a path to self sufficiency which would include: specialized job training, mental health treatment, and drug/alcohol dependency treatment.  Our goal isn't to fix homeless veterans but give them to opportunity for a fresh start.

South Mountain Vetus was formed by Michael and Shilan Leisure.  After volunteering with veteran and homeless organizations for decades, they decided to form South Mountain Vetus at a community level.  With the inspirational words of "Am I my brothers keeper?", they locate and assist homeless veterans and their families with emergency shelter, food, clothing, and specialized care.
