Backpacks For Life - Tagline/Slogan:
Our mission is to provide veterans with things they cannot provide for themselves. Reintegrating into society has many obstacles and sometimes isn’t always easy for veterans. We are hoping to be the support system that homeless & low income veterans may not have and help them in getting back on their feet; whether that means finding a job, finding housing or giving them a backpack full of daily essentials to help them survive. Homeless veterans make up a large portion of society and it is only right to help serve those who have protected our country.

Our mission is to provide Veterans with things they cannot provide for themselves. Reintegrating into society has many obstacles and sometimes isn’t always easy for veterans. We are the support system that homeless & low income veterans may not have. We help them get back on their feet; whether that means finding a job, finding housing or giving them a backpack full of daily essentials to help them survive. Homeless veterans make up a large portion of society and it is only right to help serve those who have protected our country.

Many of the veterans we work with, do not qualify for programs that exist as they only apply to veterans once they become homeless. At Backpacks For Life, we believe that in order to end homelessness among veterans, we need to help veterans at risk by providing preventative measures. Whether it is holistic therapy, job hunting, helping to buy Christmas gifts for their children or changing out old tires for new, we work closely with veterans to understand the challenges they face and create a game plan that suits them. We want to set veterans up for success and guide them along the way by putting them in contact with only the best organizations and people out there.

Comments on the Military and Business Ownership...

The life lessons in the military were priceless because of some of the life principles I learned. I think because I was taught by such a diverse group of people, it gave me a good idea on how to be a well rounded person. The intense discipline that was instilled into us regarding being a team member and how one person may not be able to do the impossible, but a team can make the impossible become possible. These are the key principles I learned and why I have become a successful person.
