Today, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our corporate office located in Liberty Township, north of Youngstown Ohio.
Homeless Veteran’s Makeover Success!
A homeless veteran was referred to us by a Job and Family Services Caseworker. The Caseworker had been able to help the veteran with housing and was now seeking employment. The problem was that the veteran had been homeless and his personal grooming and clothing had become tattered.
We were so excited to be able to help this veteran with a good shave and hair cut. Our Heroes’ Closet Program helped him with several articles of like-new clothing including a suit that fit him perfectly and pair of Bostonian shoes to go with it.
The Caseworker called us after he saw the “new” appearance and couldn’t have been more pleased. Having that makeover improved the veteran’s self-concept and he walked with his shoulders back and head up into the interview.
