The Mission of Three Oaks Center’s Southern MD Veterans Initiative is to raise awareness of and solve problems facing veterans and their families by providing necessary services and follow-on support through local community agencies so that no one has to be homeless.
Our vision is a vital community support system that facilitates the success of, paves the way to self-sufficiency for, or improves the lives of veterans and their families.
