Our mission is to provide veterans with things they cannot provide for themselves. Reintegrating into society has many obstacles and sometimes isn’t always easy for veterans. We are the support system that homeless & low income veterans may not have and help them in getting back on their feet; whether that means finding a job, finding housing or giving them a backpack full of daily essentials to help them survive. Homeless veterans make up a large portion of society and it is only right to help serve those who have protected our country.
we've given out 5,300 backpacks to veterans in need!

With each backpack, we aim to give veterans not only resources but hope for the future. Backpacks For Life is proud to partner with companies, churches and organizations in the community to help us build the best backpacks we can for our veterans. We consider these backpacks an extended hand to let our veterans know they are not alone and never forgotten.
Serving Our Veterans...One Backpack at a Time
UPCOMING SEARCH PORTAL
As a Veteran, it can be overwhelming to navigate through the many resources, organizations and services that are out there. That’s why Backpacks For Life is creating a one-stop-shop search engine where Veterans can search for exactly their need and in their general area. We are going to streamline the processes that Veterans go through in order to help them get the services they need quicker and more efficiently. We’re excited to share this platform with our Veterans and continue to serve them in new ways.
Backpacks For Life is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves the homeless, at risk and low income veteran community. Our goal is to be the helping hand to guide veterans in the right direction, connect them with the resources and tools they need and ultimately be a support system for our service men and women.
There are many ways that you can help serve our veterans and share your thanks. Whether it be volunteering at one of our packing events, raising money or hosting your own fundraiser or drive. We are happy to connect with you and tell you about the many ways you can help Backpacks For Life and our veterans.
Features & Press
Spreading awareness is the cornerstone and foundation of our organization. In honor to better serve our veterans, we need to be able to tell their story again and again so that we can continue helping veterans overcome the obstacles they face. We have been given many opportunities across many media platforms to tell our veterans' stories...
