The Mission Continues, a national non-profit headquartered in St. Louis, empowers veterans adjusting to life at home to find new missions. They have helped thousands of post 9/11 veterans transition successfully by focusing their talents and energy on tackling challenges here on our home front.
According to the 2011 report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, “Housing Instability Among Our Nation’s Veterans,” nearly 9 in 10 extremely low income veterans who served after 9/11 are severely cost burdened.
Affordable Equity Partners has supported The Mission Continues since 2012 as a member of the Leadership Committee and sponsor of the annual Veteran’s Day Gala. AEP has hosted events in Columbia, Atlanta and St. Louis, introducing The Mission Continues to business, political and civic leaders to help raise awareness, support and launch Service Platoons focused on addressing the community’s most critical needs.
