To Eliminate Homelessness among Veterans in Central Florida

Since being founded in 2008 by George Taylor Sr. and a group of his friends, our primary goal has been motivating and training groups of volunteers to go out into the woods and parks to find and help homeless veterans with food, tents, housing, getting in to the VA system, and connecting them with other resources in the community.

Though NVHS has three signature programs and many additional events during the year, our Search & Rescue recon program is the staple that reaches out to find new veterans in need, and supports our other programs.

The NVHS Search & Rescue recon teams are the only search and rescue for homeless veterans operating in the state of Florida currently, perhaps even the only search and rescue operation in the nation. This is a United Way sponsored program in Brevard County and we are always looking for new leaders, volunteers, and groups to expand our mission and our Search & Rescue program into additional counties and territories.

To find out more about our Search & Rescue program please check out our detail page. If you would like to get involved, please contact us or fill out a volunteer form to get started. Please consider joining us. We make a difference in the lives of so many veterans who may have otherwise given up hope. Drop us a line today. Sincere thanks from all of us at NVHS and on behalf of the veterans we serve.

Operations

NVHS is a busy organization! Running 5 programs wouldn’t be possible without the amazing help of our invaluable volunteers. In each program we have so many dedicated leaders, movers, and shakers.
