She has been in a shelter for 4 years, since Hurricane Ike hit Galveston Island.  She has mental health issues that make working and staying focused difficult but she got into a program that provides her with two meals a day, counseling and a voucher that lets her stay at the Salvation Army.  She stuck with that (with a few bumps along the way) for four years. With HUD-VASH and Veterans Matter I was able to get her on my list and when a voucher opened up she was first to get one.  She has no furniture but she has a place of her own, away from the areas where the old habits are; and today I’ll get her a bus pass so she can get around and really start working on getting a job and working on getting her other benefits established (she kept losing her paperwork and missing her follow-up visits with SSA).  Of my caseload she has the most need, so you guys took a big load off of me and helped a good person.  Thanks again and God bless you and the rest of your crew.

“Mr. Leslie,

I truly want to thank you and your music industry backers. For this Social worker working with our hero’s, your organization has filled a gap of financial services that had been missing in helping our Veterans. So thank you and your backers for making my job a little easier to place our hero’s in appropriate housing as soon as possible.
