For the last 5 years, Breath of Heaven Ministries, founded by Tom and Gaye King, has been serving the needs of Indian River County residents by providing assistance in various ways including housing men who are homeless veterans. Its hard to find words to describe the feeling we get when we are able to help these men get off the streets and into a healthy living environment. These men have served our country and given much to provide us a way of life of freedom and safety and they need our help. Not only do they need housing and make up a significant percentage of the homeless population, but these men suffer from mental illnesses, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder which are compounded by a lack of family and social support networks. A top priority for these men is a safe, secure, clean residence that offers a supportive environment that is alcohol and drug free. Thanks to the generosity of the home owners, who have let the ministry use the homes for housing veterans at no cost we have been able to help many. The time has come for change, and this is where we need your help. The two homes, located on the corner of 9th ave and 20th st. in Vero Beach, are being sold. Breath of Heaven Ministries has the opportunity to purchase these homes and continue providing housing for homeless veterans. We are seeking $150,000.00 immediately for the purchase of the homes or will need to remove the men that are currently living there and vacate the residences. We are asking you to seriously consider investing in the work. Please contact us with any questions that you may have. Thank you for your support.
