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 have active outreach teams in Ohio, Tennessee and Florida as well. With your HELP we can and will help put a major dent in the homeless epidemic. – Thank you

FSB Initiative

Today the NEPA team with members of the Amvets Post 59 Hanover Township, The Edwardsville Warrior Tree Project and members from the Iron Valor MC NEPA did our local outreach.

The first stop in Edwardsville the camps were deserted, gear left behind but no people. Knowing this we went to the Boat Launch area in Kingston and found many from the Edwardsville site over there.

While we only spoke with one veteran who was still on the housing list he did not need any further assistance or gear from us. We did help out quite a few homeless with hygiene, cooling towels, granola and water/Gatorade.

We appreciate the volunteers who took time out of their weekend to help with the outreach and look forward to future outreachs together.

Our next outreach will be 6/15 in Lackawanna County. More details to follow.

***Stanley Update***

We went up to the Wilkes Barre VA Medical Center to drop off Stanley's cellphone and hearing aides. He was in really good spirits and informed us that he was being taken to Divine Providence Shelter in Hazelton later today.

They have set him up there until a more permanent housing situation can be arranged. He is looking forward to going there and is very grateful for the team stepping in to assist him.

Thank you for what you do. We helped with food and water and tried to get him help but you angels came and Thank you for that

That is awesome news congratulations stanley wishing you all the best lots of prayers

FYI - the VA does have programs to get veterans Apple iPhones- it’s typically through blind rehabilitation but they can extend to other veteran on a case by case basis . It’s to help accommodations with disabilities

Great job
