All Veterans have a story, and we at Veterans Voices of Canada would like to give them the opportunity to tell it through our professional video documentation. From WW2 to recent Veterans, we feel it is very important to document their story for history. Many RCMP Veterans have served in military capacity, and we would like to document their story along with their military brothers and sisters.

Adopt-A-Vet is comprised of current and retired members of the Canadian Armed Forces whose common vision is to make sure no Veteran is forgotten and never feels alone (especially over the holidays). Adopt-A-Vet achieves this primarily through their holiday campaign, where they spend time with the Veterans bringing them gifts and sharing camaraderie, which is the least we can do for the sacrifices they made for us. Our second goal is to ensure their stories are never forgotten and are hoping to achieve this by partnering with the Safety Village of Windsor. Having the Safety Village as a partner will allow the community to interact with the veterans, allowing the new generation to hear stories and learn the history of our local heroes. Adopt-A-Vet will do anything it can to ensure all their missions are successful.
Never forgotten in life….Or in death.

The Homes For Heroes Foundation was developed in response to the growing number of military veterans who are facing crisis as they return to civilian life and find themselves on the path to homelessness.
