…Helped house 7 more veterans March 31. One of the veterans was found sleeping in his car in the Wal-Mart parking lot a week ago and we were able to get the veteran into a hotel for a week, thanks to the Lucas County Veterans Service Commission. And today, this same veteran got his apartment deposit check hand delivered to him by Shawn Clark of Veterans Matter!
…Attended the graduation ceremony for the third graduating class at the Cherry Street Mission Ministries Life Revitalization Center. Two of our housed veterans graduated today and one already has a job – thanks to Dan Rogers dream.
… Started off April, the Month of the Military Child by remembering we are not only housing veterans – we are housing families, some of those with children. The military child is brave and adaptive, and we need to support them as well! So be sure to #PurpleUp this month and celebrate the children of our nation’s heroes.
