Agencies Work Together for Homeless Veteran

Today, we want to share a “Case of the Week” from our home office located north of Youngstown Ohio in Liberty Township.

Agencies Work Together for Homeless Veteran

A Veteran had fallen on some tough times and found himself homeless, he reached out for help from the local VA.   They were able to help him with housing, but not immediately.  We frequently work with other agencies to benefit veterans by not duplicating services, but supplementing what might already be available.  He needed a place to stay while in transition into the VA program.  Veterans’ Outreach was able to provide a motel for the week that he needed.

Veteran Goes Home

Today, we want to share a “Case of the Week” from our home office located north of Youngstown Ohio in Liberty Township.

Veteran Goes Home

A Veteran became stranded in Youngstown after a series of unfortunate circumstances.  He wanted and needed to get back home to Buffalo, New York.  We purchased a Greyhound bus ticket and he was on his way back home.

“Homeless Veteran Gets New Lease on Life”

Today, we’d like to share a “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota, FL office as handled by our Regional Manager, Bob Graham.

A previously homeless veteran was given an opportunity by the VA to move into an apartment.  They would cover the rent.  However, it was mandatory that the veteran obtain and pay for renters insurance.  He had been homeless and jobless for months, was flat broke and could not pay the insurance.  The VA  caseworker suggested that he contact the Sarasota office of Veterans’ Outreach.  He did and we moved fast, with the necessary check within 2 working days, much to his relief.

Single Mom Veteran’s Water Shut Off

Today, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota Florida office.

The Sarasota office was contacted by the VA to assist one of its cases.  Katherine, a veteran of course, is a single mom with a 2 year old daughter.  Due to the Pandemic, she has been unable to do her part-time job and her ex-husband has not provided the required child support.  Consequently, the local town water utility has cut off her water supply for non-payment.  The VA asked our office for help, I contacted the veteran to get the necessary documentation and guaranteed payment to the utility.  Payment  was made to the utility provider and the veteran told us that relieved her immensely.

Patriots Day

Wow…Patriot Day!!! Practically a WWIII!

It was uttered, but not proclaimed. In a lot of ways, it was, and it changed our world forever.

Here we go again…19 years later…The Pandemic, The Riots, The Political Parties…so far apart…you can’t just reach across the aisle…you might as well be across an ocean.

Those three events have us divided like never before. We are forced to face life style changes, cultural modifications, history annihilation, and we easily garner suspicious overtures with our fellow patriots. What a nightmare and it isn’t just a bad dream…It is here and it is eating away at our nation. Have you checked out our Statue of Liberty?  I bet, if you look closely, you will see a tear or two stream down her patina cheek!

When 9/11 happened…It was broadside slam that we didn’t see coming.  Like we didn’t see the ghost of destruction called COVID 19,  nor the peaceful protests that in many cases have turned to ugly riots! Fires, killings, theft, untold destruction, and further destroying more livelihoods…adding to the carnage already evident from COVID 19.

How much more we can take?

The terrorism on our soil, destruction, and death from 9/11 should have taken us down to our knees, but Patriotism rose up like a frothing Giant…to fight back the enemy…That enemy was a Ghost as well!

Longest war in history and allot of evil humans have been vanquished.  I remember when the Congress and the Senate gathered on the White House Steps, holding hands, and showing solidarity and a unified front against Terrorism! Boy did that give us chills!

We are not just a nation of immigrants…with different cultures, colors, appetites, spiritual needs…we are all Americans. We need to come together, again, and fight for that justice and liberty for all!

There are so many enemies that will constantly want to take that away from us. We open the door to opportunities, wider than ever, so everyone can have a part of the “American Dream”.  As we face new enemies of our Democracy, domestic and international, now and in the future, we must unite, be ready, and have each other’s back.  We can’t do it alone! We need you all to come together as ONE!
