Recently, a female veteran came into our office with her children and asked for help. Our team and board members went into action and were able to assist them thanks to our donors. We were also able to take advantage of other resources as well, as a result of our latest partnership with The Hope Project. Located in Eastern Hills Mall, they help civilian families as well as those who have, and are serving when times are hard. With their help, we were able to ease the strain on our resources, allowing us to focus more of our resources on additional veteran’s and their families.read more
