Major Brian Hampton, President & CEO

Enlisting in the U.S. Army in 1968, Brian A. Hampton served our country in Vietnam.  For 22 years he remained active in the Army Reserve, and became increasingly disenchanted with our government's treatment of veterans once they returned home from fighting wars. Maj. Hampton founded the Center for American Homeless Veterans as a way to initiate lobbing to Congress on behalf of veterans.  He is also Publisher of the nationwide VETERANS' VISION Publication which focuses on the dedication and experience of America's leaders on the challenges facing the country, particularly those challenges faced by American veterans, while offering solutions for positive change. 

"Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer."

John F. Kennedy

WHO WE ARE & What We do

As of 2014, there are over 22 million veterans in the United States. On any given night, nearly 50,000 veterans are without shelter. There are over 525,000 outstanding disability claims at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Center for American Homeless Veterans (Association for Homeless and Disabled Veterans) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for those who deserve it the most, and have it the least: homeless and Disabled Veterans.

Founded in 1993 and headquartered in Falls Churh, VA, the Center for American Homeless Veterans tirelessly advocates for solutions to the problems faced by homeless and disabled veterans, including increasing access to emergency shelter and improving services offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.  

We bring the cause of homeless and disabled veterans to the attention of the American public, and put Elected Officials' feet to the fire, holding them accountable, and putting them to work for our veterans.
