What is a Working Bee?...

A "Veterans helping Veterans" Program

Working Bee - IconA Working Bee is a great way to be part of a "Veterans helping Veterans" program of the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc. & The Veterans Coalition. The idea is for Veterans, members and interested citizens to travel to a leased or purchased building that the Veterans of the Vietnam War, Inc. & The Veterans Coalition has investigated as being a viable United Veterans Beacon House, a transitional homeless Veteran program.

Working Bee - IconNo, this is not a new program, but rather one of the many programs the Organization operates in its efforts to support Veterans and their families - one of many programs that we work diligently on and expand whenever we get requests from Posts or members. Once leased or purchased, we set about a plan to renovate, construct or modify these buildings to suit the UVBH operation.

Working Bee - IconWe ask for Volunteers from within the membership and from concerned citizens to travel to these areas, sometimes remote, and we supply accommodations, meals, tools, building materials and equipment to make these renovations possible. In most instances, transportation will be arranged.

Working Bee - IconThere are many days of hard work and toil, however, there are many days of working with other members, other Veterans and interested citizens with one purpose - assisting Veterans in need.

There is a great feeling of being a part of a program that assists a portion of the over 300,000 U.S. Homeless Veterans who have no permanent residence and need a Hand Up and not a hand out.

We guarantee that you will feel a sense of accomplishment and ownership of the projects that will last a lifetime...
