A call came in from our local VA Clinic. They were working with a veteran that was suffering from depression. They had been able to help him with housing. The problem was that the veteran’s phone had been shut off. The VA staff was very concerned about the veteran being alone and unable to reach out, they also wanted to be sure that they could keep in touch with him.
They asked us if we could help with the phone to get it paid off and get the service on. We told them to send him straight here, we sent a staff person with him to the service provider, paid the bill, and immediately he had service again.
Something that might seem small to some of us might very well have saved this veteran’s life.
