Veterans exiting transitional housing facilities move into their apartments with nothing to sleep in, sit on, or eat with. Most of them dread moving into an
empty apartment, fearing isolation and loneliness. Drive By Blessings is here to prevent our Veterans from sleeping on floors and developing new or worsening emotional and mental health symptoms.
With our Furniture and Family Support program, a team of volunteers moves Veterans into their apartments, assists with setting up furniture, making beds, washing dishes, even leaving behind household
items and supplies as well as a Welcome Home sign - signifying that they are now able to feel at home with our family. Afterwards, we provide continual care and support, to help ensure that our
Veterans never return to homelessness, providing them with peer support, opportunities to volunteer and find purpose and healing from it, and refer them to additional resources they may need. No
other Phoenix nonprofit org offers Veterans what we do, making our mission at Drive By Blessings powerful and unique.

Shock and Ahh is the feature brand for the Serve Them Coffee Company - a coffee with a cause company created to help produce consistent fundraising for Drive By
Blessings and other area Veteran nonprofits who establish a coffee brand under us!
Shock and Ahh, aptly named by our Veterans because of it's super high caffiene content, is roasted locally using organic coffee beans from several regions. Most people love our Shock and Ahh blend because of its incredible flavor, never bitter like other mass consumer brands. The reason why we love it, is because it not only helps fund our organization, it also supports our troops! Customers can buy a bag and give a bag when sold at our vendor events. Bags given to us will be shipped overseas in care packages to our remotely deployed troops!
As an equal owner Drive By Blessings recieves a great amount of financial support from this coffee, allow us to focus on our Veterans, and also provide our encouragement and support to our troops.
Funding is currenly being raised so we can purchase an e-commerce accounty, making our coffee available to be sold online. Please re-visit our website soon, and set up an account with us, so that you AND our troops can receive a bag of Shock and Ahh monthly.
Drive By Blessings understands the importance of volunteerusm and how it can bing healing and a sense of purpose into our lives. Which is exactly why we have partnerned with Tierra Madre Horse Sancturary to develop the V.E.T. program. The Veterans Equine Therapy program was created to allow Vets the opportunity to learn about the world of rescued horses, the psychological trauma the animals have experienced and how these experiences relate directly to the Veteran themselves. Horses and Humans help heal one another. To learn more please visit: http://www.tierramadrehorsesanctuary.org
