Eden Veteran’s Refuge (EVR) is a sanctuary for women veterans and their children. The Refuge offers veterans to live and thrive in a communal environment. Our mission is to relieve societal burdens veterans face as they adjust post military discharge.
While Eden Veterans Refuge is headquartered in Downtown Smyrna, DE, our area of operation includes all three counties of Delaware in addition to outlying communities of Maryland and Virginia Eastern Shore as the opportunity presents itself. The Non-Profit status allows us greater flexibility to accept tax-deducted donations and more fluidity working with government agencies.
EVR works to provide children of female veterans the opportunities of a normalized life. We assist in school enrollment, activities and tutorial support. Our volunteers share their expertise in childhood nutrition, psychological therapy and activities of daily living.
