Veteran Finds Hope for Future

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

Recently, we had a veteran come into our office to seek help with his utility bill.  He stated that he had just left the unemployment office and they had directed him to us.

He has just lost his job of 15 years due to a scale back and he hated to ask us for help, since he had never needed help in the past. We told him that that is why we are in existence, and it was our privilege to help him through hard times.  We helped him with what we had on hand.

He stated that he had a degree in Criminal Justice and that he had wanted to be a police officer. We told him of a local police department that may be hiring, and sure enough, that night on the news it stated that this police department was indeed hiring.
