Our Mission

The FSB Initiative is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has one simple mission, help homeless Veterans off the street and on their feet! Our President was a homeless veteran in 2016. He was in a program that really helped him get back on his feet and then transferred to a program in Delaware that was not doing what it needed to for our Veterans. He vowed to start a program that would really make a difference in a homeless Veterans’ life. Our ultimate goal is to have our own shelter.

We go out into the homeless community and help homeless veterans with clothing, hygiene, food, and any other comforts we can give. However, the help does not stop there. We work with them if they have addictions and offer to get them into treatment if they desire. FSB can help get them shelter, employment, and other services. A homeless veteran qualifies for care through the VA even if it is not service-connected. As long as they are under the care of a program they will get the medical help they need!

Without the help of donors, we cannot complete our mission. We are working on items that can be purchased and 100% of it goes to help us help our Veterans who we owe a debt of gratitude that can not be repaid. There are no paid employees so 100% of all donations go to help men, women and their children if needed get off the street and on their feet.

We currently work with homeless veterans from Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania and hope to expand beyond that. With your HELP we can and will help put a major dent in the homeless epidemic. – Thank you

FSB Initiative

Good Evening, We have had a few people reach out to us and ask us for other ways to support the program. One way is you can do your "Birthday Donations" on Facebook. We are one of the non profits that they accept. Also if you shop on Amazon you can go to smile.amazon.com and search of us. We again are listed in their approved non profits.

Also please consider continuing to share our page with your friends and family and other veterans and veterans groups to get more people to visit us. This gets our program out there and we can possibly help even more homeless veterans. - Thank you

Ok folks now that I am back I wanted to share some crazy exciting news so pull up a chair this may be a bit long (winded).
As a lot of you know my passion and my life's mission is to help out every single homeless veteran that I can. As someone who went through being homeless (my own doing) myself I know how hard it could be to get back on your feet. Now there are some amazing programs out there and some not so good. I was in BOTH and the fact that I was in one that was not good made me realize that I needed to do something about it. And not just this state but surrounding (Maryland, Pa) needs help too.
Now I have been for the last two years working with homeless veterans on my own time and with the help (donations) from a lot of my veteran brothers and sisters and some outside help. I have been pushed to start my own program and I always said that it would happen sooner or later....
Well LATER has come!!! I am so pleased to announce that we have launched THE FSB INITIATIVE Inc. (Forward Support Base for those non-military types). We have filed the paperwork with the state, and the IRS, we will have a bank account open here in the next few weeks so that donations could be sent, and we are working on the paperwork right now so that within the next few months WE WILL BE A 501C3.
I am surrounded by some amazing people that have pushed me and helped me out beyond measure to make this happen. I will say that without their help and one person in particular we would still just be talking about this. We will now be able to help out beyond just giving them clothes and hygiene and will get into everything at a later date but just wanted everyone to know that WE (And I say we because without YOUR support I cannot do this) will help out every single homeless veteran we encounter beyond just the basics.
Thank you all who have been on this journey with me and those that have made it possible I am grateful beyond words!!!!
