We can end homelessness among Veterans.
Letter from the Chief Executive Officer
Charles Avery |  LICSW

I am Charles Avery, the Chief Executive Officer of Veterans on the Rise, Inc. I’ve been working in support of Veterans on the Rise for the last four years. This organization is dear to my heart because I am the product of a military family having over 43 members of my family who have served, including my father and my daughter. After many years of experience in social work, I am keenly aware of the issues that impact Veterans and their families, service members as they exit and enter active duty and those who serve in reserve commitments in far off lands, and even here at home. I understand the challenges and opportunities currently being faced by the Department of Veterans Affairs as it seeks to reduce the cycle time from claim to the award of veteran benefits and the challenge of ending homeless among our veterans. Veterans on the Rise seeks to not only provide transitional homes to service members, but also to provide an environment for skill development that will allow veterans to function as vital and productive members of their communities upon completion of our programs. I’m excited about the community partnerships that we have established with other local veteran community organizations, and with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the local DC Veterans Medical Center. We look forward to providing first class services to veterans as they seek to overcome issues of homelessness. We thank those who would like to get involved for providing their time and financial support to Veterans on the Rise’s effort. Thank you for your support for those who have served.

Let Us Help
VOTR has a high success rate.
  After Care Services

VOTR has a high success rate in assisting graduates in obtaining long term rental subsidies and locating alternative affordable housing.
85% of the Veterans that are served through VOTR are able to sustain their home at the completion of transitional placement.
An average of 10% lack sufficient income to maintain housing independently at the completion of placement and are assisted in identifying alternative housing. The remaining 5% have proven the need for additional intensive services. Continue Reading...
