Temporary Housing

Our Decatur, Alabama office offers our readers the newest Case of the Week.

Written by our AL office staff: We just had a Veteran to call in requesting our help with temporary housing for himself and his wife, as they lost everything they own in a fire. He requested we line this up with the Salvation Army. After discussing with the Salvation Army, and we found that they would have to stay in separate dormitories which would cost twice as much.

We researched and negotiated with a local Motel and got them a room for a week with a kitchenette, which will help them with their food expenses as well.

The Veteran was overjoyed and thanked us several times..

Peace Of Mind That He Could Get Home

Today, the Case of the Week that we want to share with you comes from our corporate headquarters in Liberty Ohio. Of the 99 veterans that we helped from this office last week, this one stood out.

A veteran was referred to us for help to get back home to North Carolina. He came to our area to attend truck driving school. He completed the training, but after several attempts was unable to pass the test due to poor backup skills. He was done, and needed to go home. He was out of money, and went to another agency to get help. They couldn’t help with a bus ticket, so they brought him to us. We purchased a Greyhound ticket for him. He came to us, not knowing what he was going to do.

Although the career choice didn’t work out, he left us with peace of mind that he could get home.
