EXCITING NEWS!

JON BON JOVI SOUL FOUNDATION TO HELP PROVIDE HOUSING FOR HOMELESS VETERANS: Rock Legend’s Latest Grant Will Support American Legion’s Veterans Center of Hoboken.

HOME. We all know what it means. We all know how it feels. But, what if there is no place to call home? And, what if the person without a home is a veteran who proudly served our country? Sadly, that is the reality for 38,000 veterans in our country who do not have a place to call home.

American Legion Post 107 and its charitable arm, the Veterans Center of Hoboken, is doing something about it. We are expanding our facilities to provide secure, affordable housing and other vital services including physical and mental health care and employment opportunities for struggling veterans.
To address the problem of homelessness among veterans, American Legion Post 107 reopened after Superstorm Sandy a revitalized, flood-resilient Post in 2019 that includes six housing units for homeless veterans.

The Veterans Center of Hoboken provides help, hope and home.

Because no one should ever be without a safe place to call home – especially our veterans who have sacrificed so much – Post 107 and the Veterans Center of Hoboken are working even harder to expand our facilities and services. We are planning a 20,000 square foot addition that will include:
  • 18 new apartment units for homeless veterans
  • Larger meeting and recreation space for a growing, vibrant Post membership
  • Community event space
