Ways to Help

What we do

We find homeless under bridges, on the streets, in woods and fields, and other places to give them warm clothing and other items to stay warm. Learn more here.

Focus on Veterans

We supply homeless veterans with knowledge and information for services and programs they might not even know are available. SZM was founded by veterans. Learn more here.
