Why Help

Like most programs we are challenged by the tough economic times and increasing needs. The Veterans Program wants to do as much as possible to serve our Veterans. We have expanded our outreach and services to better meet the emergent needs of Veterans and their families who are indigent, homeless, and facing many challenges. We know there are many in our community who would help if they knew their donations would benefit Veterans. Our program has helped transition many from homelessness. In addition, we are assisting more of our new Veterans who face transitional issues and challenges.
