The National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) is based in San Antonio has expanded to become the premier Veterans service provider and a model for homeless Veterans nationally according to the VA. The NVOP offers assistance to all Veterans in need, the homeless and their families. Funding is obtained through Federal Agencies, State and local programs, and private donors.

With the help of our local communities, sponsoring organizations and the hard work of members and staff, the mission set forth for Heroes Lodge is similar to the one set forth on March 26, 1948 to assist Veterans and their families in need.
