A caseworker from a county Veterans Service Commission called Veterans’ Outreach to find some help for a veteran that she was working with. This veteran is a single male, and he lives alone. A couple of months ago, he became very ill and was hospitalized for several weeks. He has recovered and has been able to go back home. Unfortunately, while he was away, his water had been shut off.
He has been able to return to work, but hasn’t gotten paid and won’t be paid for another couple of weeks. He turned to the Veterans Service Commission for help. The caseworker knows they can help him, but not immediately. The caseworker called Veterans’ Outreach and asked if we could help this veteran. Veterans’ Outreach paid a large portion of the veteran’s water bill and the service was reconnected.
We are so gratified when we can work together to make a huge difference in a veteran’s quality of life, running water in the household fits that description. Thanks to donors’ support, we can stand ready to serve and honor veterans every day.
