-Dustin Bystrom, MACV Employment Services Manager 

The mission of Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) is to end Veteran homelessness in Minnesota. We believe that no one who served should be homeless. We reach more than 3,000 people per year and provided comprehensive services to over 1,700 Veterans in 2020. 

MACV offers legal services, employment services, and housing assistance to help Veterans experiencing or at-risk of homelessness throughout Minnesota. Over the past year, we have found long-term housing for more than 100 Veterans and responded to a greater need for transportation, housing, and food assistance. Innovative programs targeting justice-involved Veterans, Veterans experiencing unsheltered homelessness, and Healthcare Navigation address the varied challenges which affect our clients every day.  

The Veterans MACV serves are some of the hardest to engage for any provider, and we expect an uptick in need as the aftermath from the pandemic unfolds.  Despite the challenges which lay ahead, our supporters give us faith that Minnesota can and will end Veteran homelessness in the years ahead. Record-breaking generosity from our donors during last year's Give to the Max Day only adds to our belief in this community! 

Right now, more than 270 Veterans are waiting for a place to call home. We need your support as we help these Veterans find their way back to the lives they deserve.


MACV remains dedicated to its mission to end Veteran homelessness in Minnesota, and can proudly report that Minnesota is closer than ever to this dream. We envision a day when every Veteran in Minnesota has access to services and supports to avoid homelessness and live a stable life fueled by integrity and hope. In the past year, two more regions in Minnesota have declared an end to Veteran homelessness in their communities.  Today is the day, and the time is now. MACV asks you to  be part of the story of how Minnesota ended Veteran homelessness.
