FORE! Homeless Veterans 2017

FORE! Homeless Veterans

Central Iowa Shelter & Services is excited to bring back the FORE! Homeless Veterans golf outing for the second year in a row! FORE! Homeless Vets is a 4-person best ball played at River Valley Golf Course in Adel. Tee off is 8 A.M. on Friday, June 23rd. Make sure you show up early to buy mulligans and specials to help lower your score! Click Here for the registration page.


All proceeds of this golf outing go to help Veterans at Central Iowa Shelter & Services. At any given time CISS has 20-35 veterans staying in the facility. We have 19 apartments on the third floor of the building designated solely to veterans and mostly funded by the VA. All of those clients work directly with our full time Veterans Case Manger who helps them navigate the VA, medical needs, job searches and housing. CISS is also proud to be a part of the Mayor's Challenge initiative to end veteran homelessness. Through the efforts of several community partners we were able to bring veteran homelessness in Des Moines to a "Functional Zero" by getting housing for any veteran that enters the system within 45 days. 

Through everything that we have done, CISS still knows that the problem is not completely solved. Every week more of our veterans walk through our doors in need of a safe place or a meal. With your help we can make sure that every veteran that walks through our doors gets treated with the honor and dignity that they should have already received by helping them find a way back on their feet and back to self-sufficiency. By participating in the FORE! Homeless Veterans golf outing you are directly helping the veterans in need in your community. Thank you for your commitment to these heroes.
