Help out Heroes! By purchasing the Team AMVETS Freedom Bar, you’re helping purchase furniture for formerly homeless Veterans in the Team AMVETS Welcome Home Program. Team AMVETS™ provides furniture, appliances and other household items to Veterans who have been homeless, but are now in the process of rebuilding their lives through Veterans Affairs’ HUD-VASH housing program. The items we provide to a Veteran will transform an otherwise barren housing unit into a true home for that Veteran. Help us support our Veterans!
