New Directions for Veterans is a nonprofit organization based on the West Los Angeles Veterans Affairs campus that provides housing and social services to more than 1,800 veterans and their families each year.

"The Veterans Canteen is a great opportunity to unite Southern California for a single common purpose and create awareness about homeless veterans," said Colonel (Ret.) Yvette J. Kelley, CEO and President of NDVets. "Many of our veterans are struggling with circumstances that both war and living on the streets has caused them, and can no longer fight for themselves. The gala will not only be an opportunity to raise much-needed funds to continue the work of New Directions for Veterans, but show gratitude toward both our veterans and those who are willing to fight for them."
