The United Veterans Beacon House is seeking applications for their Per Diem Transitional Home for Native American Homeless Veterans located in Promise, South Dakota.

You do not need to be a Native American to apply. You will have to have empathy and respect for their culture and service. Veterans will always obtain preference. Veterans other than Native American Veterans will be housed.

We are seeking Veterans who are legitimately seeking a drug and alcohol free, new and vibrant life where learning skills, volunteerism, participation and achievement all exist in a wonderful setting.
