Creating a New Path to Hope!

Many veterans experience unexpected barriers to success. Our goal is to provide them with hope, health and happiness by helping them gain access to:

Community Connections
Other Necessary Support

After helping veterans for nearly 25 years, we’re making a lot of exciting new changes so we can help them for at least another 25 years. We’ll soon be announcing our new name and website.

Look for these and many more exciting changes in the weeks ahead!

At TLS Veterans we envision building a community where every veteran is integrated, connected, and self-sustained.

Our mission is to provide veterans in need and their families the services necessary to experience hope and achieve success.
We do this through our four main values of RESPECT, INTEGRITY, COMPASSION and ADVOCACY.

“TLS Veterans helped me out with a room until I transfer over to building 66. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the help. It’s so nice sleeping in a bed again and being able to shower everyday. I plan on stopping in tomorrow morning around 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. to pick up some more food if that’s a possibility?  Have a great night man, peace! “
