This week, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our corporate office north of Youngstown, Ohio in Liberty Township.
Our Services Director received a call from a Veteran Case Manager out of the Akron Ohio area. She was in the process of finding housing for a female veteran with four teen-aged children and two pets. They had been victims of a domestic dispute and found themselves homeless. The caseworker was able to secure housing for them through the HUD VASH Program, but not for a few days.
This meant that the family had nothing and nowhere to go. We were able to secure a hotel stay for the family and pets until the HUD VASH housing would be ready for them. No one had to come into our office due to the distance, everything was handled via phone, fax, and internet.
We are so grateful to be able to partner with agencies, both government and private, that work with us to help veterans all across all of the states that we do business in. We exist to help veterans.
