The Program’s Impact

Through its strategic partnerships, generous grants, expansive Helping Heroes National Network, and innovative new projects, Tunnel to Towers achieved a remarkable feat in 2022 by providing safe haven and comprehensive support to more than 500 veterans who had previously faced homelessness or were at risk of experiencing it. This exceptional accomplishment stands as a testament to Tunnel to Towers’ unwavering commitment to our nation’s heroes, ensuring they not only find stable housing but also receive the necessary services to rebuild their lives with dignity and hope. By continuing to forge impactful partnerships, secure vital grants, and launch pioneering initiatives, Tunnel to Towers is dedicated to extending its reach and impact, ushering in a brighter future for even more veterans in need.


In 2023, Tunnel to Towers is providing housing assistance and services to more than 2000 veterans.

National Case Management Network

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s National Case Management Network is comprised of an internal team of case managers who are currently conducting intake for homeless veterans from all over America, no matter the location, and are connecting homeless veterans with safe, dignified housing options and providing direct financial assistance from Tunnel to Towers to get them housed.
After the shelter and basic needs of veterans are met, our team then works with the veterans to determine their immediate needs, such as mental, physical, emotional or financial needs. Tunnel to Towers is building a national network of public and private organizations, regional VA agents, attorneys, landlords, mental health counselors, employers, and financial counselors. We are currently working with hundreds of organizations across the nation to rapidly house our Veterans, then we meet veterans’ specific needs, to ensure they can sustain their housing accommodations, and begin to build back their lives.

In addition to the Foundation’s properties which address veteran homelessness in key metro-areas, the Foundation is also building a national referral network to support veterans struggling with homelessness across the nation, no matter the location.
The Homeless Veteran Program’s National Case Management Network will provide veterans with the housing, servicing, and financial assistance needed to get their lives back on track. We are working with a litany of private organizations, VA offices, landlords, and employment agencies to provide holistic support to veterans and their families, no matter their location.
Our National Case Management Network’s goal is to eliminate barriers to housing by providing timely assistance and support to help Veterans navigate through systems and resources needed to re-integrate into the community. Once the Foundation provides the needed financial assistance to get a Veteran rapidly housed and the Veteran’s immediate crisis has been addressed, we provide support to address any psycho-social factors that may be impeding a Veteran’s stability, including mental, physical, and financial wellness.
Our National Case Management Network encompasses a team of case managers, employment and housing coordinators, managers and administrative staff, who work collaboratively to address root causes of homelessness. Our Program works with both homeless Veterans and Veterans who are at-risk of becoming homeless. We follow the principles of the housing first model and use evidence based practices in our approach.

The Homeless Veterans Program provides assistance to Homeless Veterans in the following ways:

Broker Fees, 1st Month rent, Security deposits
Utility Deposits or Arrears
Housing Application Fees
Items needed to support a move into housing (storage, movers, etc)
