Last year the Turning Points Yellow Ribbon Veteran's Program rehoused 56 veteran families during the fiscal year. Another 39 were provided with assistance to prevent them from becoming homeless, and 59 other veterans received case management services. This could not have happened with out the support of volunteers.
This program is in need of 1 or 2 peer mentors willing to assist Veterans with EMPLOYMENT, RAPID REHOUSING, CHILD CARE, TRANSPORTATION and much, much, more. If you have a heart for helping Veterans and their families then this is a great volunteer opportunity for you.
