Welcome to United Veterans Beacon House

United Veterans Beacon House (UVBH) is a not-for-profit charitable organization that was incorporated in 1994 and operates under Chapter 501 (c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code in New York State.

Our Mission is: To provide temporary and permanent residence for U.S. Military Veterans. To Provide emergency, temporary and permanent residence for men, women and women with children..

Our story...

Began by the efforts of a group of philanthropic Vietnam Veterans, one residence was opened in 1994. UVBH is proud to say we now operate and support 25 locations throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties (24 for housing and 1 for our headquarters) and provide services to over 195 men, women and children on any given day. Primarily, UVBH was formed to work with the homeless veteran population of the Tri State area and continues to do so; we work with veterans who come to us with physical disabilities, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, mental health issues and/or alcohol addiction. Many years ago we expanded our efforts to include assisting the non-veteran population and the issues they face, including homelessness, drug and/or alcohol addiction and job skill/readiness development.

UVBH places each person or family that comes to us in the home and program that best supports their needs. Along with a safe and structured living environment we provide our residents with a host of supportive services, including Case Management, transportation for medical visits and appointments, education and job placement programs and services as well as coordination of all mental and emotional counseling. We also connect our residents with entitlements.
