Help Our Veterans
Want to know how to help Veterans? Visions for Vets is a St. Louis-based non-profit art school enriching, preserving, and respecting the lives of our Military Veterans while empowering them through the healing power of the arts. We need your help! Since we began V4V in 2015, the life-changing improvements in our Veteran Artists’ emotional health as they bond with one another and grow in their artistic abilities has been incredible. In order to continue our mission, your help is crucial to our Veterans’ success!
Help Us Connect to the Community
Since we’re a fairly young 501 (c)(3) non-profit, we need you to help us connect with our St. Louis area communities and your worldwide social media network. We want to share and emphasize that Veterans deserve respect and need to stop being labeled “disabled” and “mental.” Our Veterans have accomplished more than civilians can imagine and they selflessly served our country for our freedoms.
Take a look at our amazing artists’ gallery and hear from our Veteran Artists how much they love creating art with total freedom! Please help Veterans by connecting with Visions for Vets to find out more!
100% Donation Funded Veteran Program
Because we are an independent non-profit not affiliated with or funded by any government or VA program, we rely 100% on donations and volunteers from our community, businesses, and sponsors. We are eternally grateful for monetary donations, art supplies, meals, grants, sponsorships, and support of our efforts by shopping in our online store. Please help Veterans by donating to Vision for Vets today!
Volunteer to Help Vets in St. Louis!
Visions for Vets and our Veteran Artists love our volunteers and want to encourage you to call and ask how you can help. There are many ways to volunteer, including teaching art, offering meals, and more. We would like to mention that due to the sensitivity of many of our Veterans, we must maintain a limited non-Veteran-to-Veteran proportion (3 non-Veteran volunteers at a time) to ensure the security and comfort of our Veteran Peer Group. Please contact us to find out how you can volunteer and make a difference to a Veteran.

Presently Visions for Vets holds classes every Friday evening at 6:00 PM and every Saturday Morning at 8:00 AM.
