Empower Veterans

Since 2008, Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) has helped struggling veterans create better lives for themselves and their families.

At VEO, we know and understand the importance of providing Housing, Optimal Wellness (including addiction recovery and mental health services), and Workforce & Income for our veterans.


Customizing our treatment approach and providing wraparound services designed for the specific needs of each veteran is HOW we ensure permanent success.


VEO strives to follow an evidence-based Theory of Change model to impact the lives of veterans and their families.
