As our nation’s heroes fight to recover, they should not have to face the additional stress resulting from insufficient lodging and financial burdens. These men and women, from World War II to the present, have served our country in times of war and in peace. Now they need our help.

The Lee & Penny Anderson Defenders Lodge, a “home away from home,” which provides comforting accommodations to veterans while they receive treatment at the VA. Free to out-patients and their caregivers, the Defenders Lodge is 100% ADA compliant and provides annually more than 20,000 nights of stay. With most patients coming for appointments once a month and requiring two nights of stay each visit, this translates into a savings of $2,500-$4,000 per veteran each year.
