This Week In History
Welcome to VETERANS' OUTREACH Internet Community! Veterans' Outreach is proud to finally have a multi-faceted presence on the World Wide Web. We hope that you enjoy your visit while you learn about us and scan through all that this site has to offer, such as the news links, corporate gallery, store depot, veterans services, and so on. Veterans’ Outreach, with this site, will finally be able to reach out to wherever there are AMERICAN VETERANS, to offer a "beacon of hope", a flame in the night, to our vets in need. We hope to inspire, connect, and help transform a bad situation into a managed opportunity. The development of this Internet project will be an ongoing work in progress. It will be a place where the world of our military, our veterans, and loved ones can come together and be united stronger than ever in "serving and honoring" all of America's heroes!

As winter settles into the Valley, the need to supply veterans with basic necessities is greater than ever.

We are excited to announce the second annual “Dice Run for Veterans' Outreach”!
This past September 20124, Veterans’ Outreach and A.B.A.T.E. of Ohio (American Bikers Aimed Towards Education) hosted the first annual “Dice Run” in Youngstown, OH with great success! The event raised $1,209.50 for local veterans in need, bringing together bikers and locals for a great cause.
In an effort to better understand the health and well being of our country's bravest, East Tennessee University is conducting a survey to help raise awareness on potential protective characteristics that might influence veterans' health. The survey is completely confidential and asks questions ranging from your exercise habits to how many times you have been deployed.
The survey will take approximately 30 minutes. You will be entered into a drawing to win several Amazon gift cards.
A Charity’s Legitimacy
Since the dawn of Veterans’ Outreach, we have worked tirelessly towards to help better the cause of American veterans and yet the attacks and the cynically charged are still out there.
We wish each and every one of you the best that 2015 has to offer from Veterans’ Outreach. We want to thank all of our sponsors that have enabled us to help thousands of veterans last year and the many thousands over the last 20 years!

Lack of employment is one of the major issues facing veterans of all ages. According to PBS, around 9% of veterans are unemployed. That average is higher than the unemployment rate of civilians at 7%. As veterans struggle to find employment, Veterans’ Outreach offers a unique opportunity to employ local vets.
Like most nonprofits, Veterans’ Outreach depends on public support to help meet the needs of its mission. Veterans’ Outreach works tirelessly each day for veterans’ assistance not only in Youngstown, but throughout several parts of the country. We are a veterans’ assistance organization that exists for the sole purpose of assisting. Sometimes, the organizations who do the helping need help themselves.
