United Veterans Beacon House

The United Veterans Beacon House is seeking applications for their Per Diem Transitional Home for Native American Homeless Veterans located in Promise, South Dakota.

You do not need to be a Native American to apply. You will have to have empathy and respect for their culture and service. Veterans will always obtain preference. Veterans other than Native American Veterans will be housed.

We are seeking Veterans who are legitimately seeking a drug and alcohol free, new and vibrant life where learning skills, volunteerism, participation and achievement all exist in a wonderful setting.

The United Veterans Beacon House Home and Farm is located on 29 acres of the beautiful Moreau River Valley and will house 13 Veterans seeking a new life - a Hand Up and not a hand out.

We are a zero tolerance, drug and alcohol free facility.

This is NOT a rest home or shelter. It is, however, a Transitional Home where every resident will participate in Trade and Life Skills Training along with volunteerism. A requirement is for everyone to learn, be grateful, live with dignity and want to help Veterans.
