Veterans Manor - Housing 

One of the first lessons learned in the military is "Leave no one behind." Yet many veterans find themselves "left behind" when they leave the serve. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates 107,000 veterans are homeless on any given night and that over the course of a full year, approximately twice that many will experience homelessness. Veterans Manor Milwaukee and Veterans Manor Green Bay are bricks-and-mortar testaments to Cardinal Capital's commitment to that same motto: leave no veterans behind on the streets of America. Every time a resident of Veterans Manor resident walks through their front door, they are afforded the dignity and respect they have earned and deserve.
