The Five Star Veterans Center is a nonprofit corporation committed to making a positive impact in the community by assisting those men and women who, when answering the call to duty, protected the freedom of that same community by serving their nation. Our mission is to ensure a positive impact in North Florida by offering safe/secure housing to displaced veterans, in an attempt to alleviate veteran homelessness. Our military residents are treated with the dignity, compassion and respect they deserve, while providing a structured "Passport to Independence" program to re-integrate these heroes back into the society, whose freedoms they fought to protect. Many of our young population, some right out of high school, hear the call to duty, and continue to act on that conviction today. Isn't it now our "duty" to offer these American heroes a chance to excel in life and become a viable member of society again?
