RTYV provides homeless or at risk of being homeless veterans with not only a home and food, but the support system to live independently in their community.

They fought for us. Let's fight for them!
"After losing my job last year I could not afford a secure place to stay. Right Turn gave me a shelter that felt like any other home, with food that we want, and focused me really hard on job opportunities. They even encouraged people who stay here to further their education. I gladly say that they saved me and many others from hardship and stress. Thank you Right Turn, and thanks to the staff: Judy, Ron, Mirna and the donators."- Brian
Right Turn Yuma Veterans Assistance
Provide homeless or at risk of being homeless veterans with a permanent transition from homelessness to financial and social independence by providing transitional housing to include room and board, assistance in obtaining financial independence, medical benefits and services, and re-engagement with community and family.
"In the program I was allowed to work at my own pace. I received counseling for PTSD, referrals to training classes and job placement. I was given a place to stay, and three meals a day. It was safe and secure without worries. Staff are friendly and helpful. Because of the program, I have a job, my own place, a little truck and a future. I thank God for a lot of things and especially for RIGHT TURN FOR YUMA VETS." - John

Return homeless veterans to permanent financial and social independence
"I cannot thank the program enough for the opportunities it has allowed me to take advantage of, like finally returning to college full time. Not only am I in a comfortable environment with friendly people, but I am now able to put money away in preparation for my transition forward, which is the whole reason behind the program; allowing Veterans to prepare for the future. I could say there is no way I could have made it to where I am today had it not been for the help and support I have received here."- Richie
