A homeless veteran had gotten help from another agency with finding an apartment and getting to the point of being approved to move in. He ran into a major snag that threatened to halt the entire process. It was discovered that he had an outstanding water and sewer bill from a time when his disabilities overcame his good sense. The utility provider stood firm on their policy, no service for this veteran until the past due bill was paid in full.
Veterans’ Outreach was able to work with the utility provider and pay the outstanding amounts. The veteran was cleared to move in immediately.
Thanks to working with other like-minded agencies, generous donors, and monthly supporters, we can step in and help when it is needed most.
