Accomplishments

 
 
 

As we enter another new year, we are proud to state that we have been in the business of helping veterans for over 21 years.   We are honored to have met so many heroes.  We have seen a lot of change.   From one small office in one state to currently five full service offices in multiple states.   In 2014, after years in the planning we were able to purchase a corporate home for Veterans’ Outreach.  Two doctors decided to retire and sell their building just at the time we were poised to purchase.  They were very generous and even donated the office furnishings.  The move is significant in so many ways – we now have enough space to meet our needs and develop more programs for veterans.

 

We are grateful for and humbled by the generous donations of those who are proud and supportive of this country’s military.  Because of you, we have made great strides including reaching more than 17,400 times since we began our mission.

 

¨     In 2014, we were able to help veterans 3,281 times throughout the regions we serve.  We have served veterans in our offices, through our website, through referrals from other agencies, and over the phone. 

¨     We have provided shelter to homeless veterans. 

¨     We have helped with emergency financial assistance for veterans in crisis.

¨     We have provided employment assistance with jobs that can support a family. 

¨     Our Workforce Program has employed hundreds of veterans. 

¨     We have provided free food and clothing to veterans through generous donors and community efforts. 

¨     We have registered thousands of veterans for the WWII Registry of Remembrances in Arlington, Virginia. 

¨     Home Free, our patriotic CD has had more digital downloads and CD sales in 2014 than in the last 10 years.   

¨     We have had community groups volunteer to hold fundraising events to benefit services for veterans.  

¨     We have more than 1,000 people visit our website on a monthly basis. 

¨     Our Facebook site has over 10,000 likes. 

 

We believe patriotism is on the rise in this country and we plan to continue serving and honoring veterans with a passion that attempts to mirror the selfless sacrifices that service men and women make every day. 

                                               

                                          GOD BLESS THE USA!
