FACT: Heat is a NECESSITY in Wisconsin, not an unaffordable luxury!

Wisconsin is home to over 413,000 veterans, 16,000 of which are unemployed and 58,000 are disabled.

 

Veterans Served by Heat for Heroes:

Total Vets served in 2016: 3,848

Total Vets served in 2017: 6,280

 

 

Next to health challenges and limited incomes, the principle cause of homelessness in Veterans is their inability to pay for the escalating costs to keep their heat and power on. 

Of the 413,000 Veterans in Wisconsin, about 200,000 of those Veterans served during WWII, Korea and the Vietnam Wars.

 

FACT: Your donation and support to the Heat for Heroes Campaign matters!

Thousands of Veterans fall below the State and Federal poverty line.
