The Veterans Life Center is designed to help at-risk 21st Century veterans and prevent them from falling into crisis – chronic homelessness, incarceration, suicide or premature death.
Our mission is to improve the lives of 21st Century North Carolina veterans who are experiencing reintegration problems by providing temporary housing and services with the goal of achieving self-reliance in two years or less.
The Veterans Life Center is a residential program designed to help at-risk 21st Century veterans. Our goal is to provide each of our residents the prospect of a constructive and personally satisfying role in civil society.

Our planned 100+ bed facility in Butner, NC will be built on property leased from the state.
Our typical veteran residents will be those who have been unable to make a successful transition.
