Our local office is located at 255 Grant Street here in Seven Lakes. Military Missions in Action is dedicated to assisting Veterans with disabilities, homeless Veterans and members of the Armed Forces, and their families. It is a charitable nonprofit organization which serves five basic needs: provides home modification services to ensure that Veterans with mental and physical disabilities can live independently in their homes; provides furniture and household goods to formerly homeless Veterans; supports active-duty service members and military working dogs serving in combat zones; supports North Carolina homeless Veterans with health and hygiene items, clothing, shoes, and blankets; strengthens the awareness of military children with special needs through social inclusion activities and directly assists with home modifications. 93 cents of every dollar goes to fund MMIA programs.
