HBI.org Building Careers for Veterans

About Us

Veterans’ Outreach is a non-profit charitable organization since 1994. We are registered through the IRS with a 501(C)3 determination, the Department of State, and other government agencies as required by law. We are registered to do business in 8 states including Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Florida, New York, Virginia, Alabama, and Delaware. We are active in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Virginia, Alabama, and Florida. We have full service offices in Struthers, OH; Sarasota, FL; Grayson, KY; Lexington, KY; and Decatur, AL.

The board is comprised of individuals that have a deep respect and gratitude to the American veteran.  John Ely is the President. He is the son of a Pearl Harbor survivor – a medic on the scene. He is the brother of a chronically ill Vietnam War veteran. He is the father of a LT in the National Guard.  His passion for the well-being of our veterans is deep rooted. John’s background is in social services, sales, and entertainment. He not only leads this organization, but he also handles our web site development, human resource management, and expansion efforts.

Robert Julian is our Vice-President and Treasurer. Bob handles our services – he meets with the hurting veterans and their families that come to us for help. He gives them the time that they need, regardless of his schedule, and they exclaim their gratitude regularly. His background as a Union Steward and entrepreneurial businessman have allowed his negotiating and counseling skills to excel. He also oversees the financial management of the entire organization.

Thomas Price is our Secretary. Tom is a full time private accountant. His experience as a self-employed businessman has equipped him with professional leadership and expertise. He prepares the Audit information annually for review by state and federal governing authorities.

We are proud of the dedication and unselfish diligence of our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, sponsors, and members.   We have guidance from a highly prestigious professional accountant, law firm, and auditing firm. We are a sponsoring member of the VFW, the USO, Toys for Tots, and a lifetime charter member of the National WWII Memorial Society.

We are not affiliated with the government, nor are we subsidized by government grants. We raise all funds ourselves through our own programs, corporate and foundation grants, and patriotic CD sales.

We are a unique service organization comprised of veterans and non-veterans, all sharing the common goal to serve and honor veterans. We care for all veterans, whether from WWII or the current Afghanistan War and all that have served in between. We do not operate a club at which to congregate; we operate offices for assistance. Veterans contact us daily with problems concerning housing, utilities, auto repair, and a host of other needs. For the majority of cases, we are able to provide some kind of immediate relief. We are known for eliminating red tape. We see it as very, very basic. These fine Americans served our country, and we owe them our gratitude, support, and our help. We believe that all veterans, regardless of whether they served in active duty or here at home are entitled to our appreciation and we humbly honor them for their selfless sacrifice and service.
