Elks Veterans Service Commission
The Elks National Veterans Service Commission promises service to our nation's veterans and military members, with a special focus on service to those in need.
Thousands of Elks volunteers give generously of their time, energy and resources to serve veterans and military members each day.
Volunteers provide direct service to veterans in more than 330 facilities each month. Through grants to Elks Lodges, Elks National Veterans Service Commission helps volunteers connect with veterans and military members in their communities, providing them with services where they live. Elks volunteers help veterans rehabilitate and thrive through adaptive sports programs and therapy kits. The Welcome Home initiative is reaching out to some of our most vulnerable veterans: those who are experiencing homelessness.
Every night, 40,000 veterans are homeless.
In partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Elks National Veterans Service Commission has pledged to help end veteran homelessness, and ensure that every veteran has the safe, stable home they deserve. To accomplish this goal, we need your help!
We depend on you.
