Morgan Siler – National Housing Advocate

Morgan has been with Veterans Matter since 2020. Her favorite part of working at Veterans Matter is reading the success stories from the Veterans Affairs case managers. These stories are sent to us once a Veterans finally moves the streets and into a home of their own. In her free time, she loves spending time with family and volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters of NWO.
