After over a year of homelessness, living in their vehicle, Army veteran Jaimaya Jones and his family received unexpected help from U.S. Vets – Long Beach.

U.S. Vets found a three-bedroom home, and through a grant-funded program, leased the residence and placed Jones and his daughters into their new home.

In addition, U.S. Vets donated living room furniture, bedroom sets, a refrigerator, bath supplies and kitchenware. The family is now stabilized and will celebrate the coming holidays in a home.

If anyone would like to assist this veteran family or other homeless veterans, call U.S. Vets – Long Beach at (562) 200-7300 or visit for more information.

U.S. Vets is the largest veteran-specific, non-profit housing and service provider in the country. The mission of U.S. Vets is to successfully transition military veterans and their families through the provision of housing, counseling, career-development and comprehensive support.
