We Can Be Heroes has been a proud sponsor of the
Clara White Mission Transitional Housing Program and Homeless Veterans Program since 2017.

We Don’t Know Them All… But We Owe Them ALL.”
Thank you for remembering those who served in the defense of our freedoms.

What we do:

We Can Be Heroes Foundation sponsors the Homeless Veterans Transitional Housing Program and the Homeless Veterans Meeting Room at the Clara White Mission in the highly populated Veteran City of Jacksonville, Florida.  We lead donation drives and collect nonperishable food, clothes and goods at events and have volunteers to receive your donations in Duval, Clay and St. Johns Counties of Florida. We serve catered luncheons and join the luncheon to meet and thank each Veteran for their service.  Throughout each month, we deliver prepackaged, nonperishable, individual servings of foods, toiletries, personal item and clothing. 

What the Clara White Mission’s Veterans Program does:

The Transitional Housing Program provides a welcoming place with 23 dormitory beds for low-income Veterans in need to live while working toward permanent and independent living within 24 months.  Residents are required to be employed and/or currently enrolled in school; participate in case management and life-skill classes; complete health and mental health assessment and counseling; maintain required sobriety, and participate in substance abuse education classes and support.  As veterans graduate, there is a need for furnishings for their new residence. 

The Homeless Veterans Meeting Room is a place for homeless veterans to drop-in and meet with other homeless veterans, and the Clara White Mission Staff for assistance. 

 What You Can Do: 

Donate food and goods shown below, help serve at luncheons, solicit luncheon meals from restaurants, and solicit clothes and merchandise from merchants.  If you are a member of a Church, Organization or Group, please consider hosting a food collection for homeless veterans.  Call 904 383-8817 for pick up or further information.  You can also complete the “Quick Contact” at the bottom right side of our home page.
