Founded and run by veterans, MHVI's mission is to help homeless and at-risk veterans reach and maintain their highest levels of independence. We offer unique programs to fill the gaps and don't duplicate what others do, and cooperate with the Veterans Administration, Wis. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, County Veterans Service Officers, and other non-profit agencies.

Since 2008 we have helped more than 3,000 veterans and their famililes in southeastern Wisconsin to obtain benefits, housing, health care, furniture, household goods, food, clothing, transportation, toiletries and other necessities.


Transitioning from the military to the civilian workforce can be challenging.

The VETS seminar includes complete skills inventories, career interest and work values assessments, résumé services, supportive services, networking strategies, as well as interview preparation and rehearsal sessions. Upon successful completion of the seminar, we provide one-on-one and group career coaching, introductions to appropriate employment opportunities and follow-on customized job placement services. We have successfully placed many of our veteran “Job Ready” clients in high level positions with several employers that recognize the valuable skill sets of our graduates. Once employed, we provide additional retention services to increase the success rate for both the employer and the veteran.

Our mission is simple: to pair the right veteran with the right employer in the right position.

Classes are held regularly at our Headquarters in Indianapolis, and WorkOne locations around the state.  

On the shores of Big Carr Lake, in the heart of The Northwoods, there is a haven with a Mission to provide rest, relaxation, recuperation and rehabilitation to Wisconsin veterans of all ages, active duty military service members and their families.
