Adopting Our Veterans
Thank you for all your help in
Adopting our Veterans..
So many have come on board and have been helping with the remodeling of our Veteran's Shelter. There are only a couple of rooms to go..
We are very thankful to our VFW'S
who have been very active in District 7. Three rooms were claimed by them and we are quickly needing more beds and mattresses. Thanks to our partnership with the VA , Family Endeavors , and Hud - Vash , the beds have been filling fast. We moved many out , but the need is increasing as more Veteran's are becoming homeless. The empty beds of those who moved out filled right back up..
A big thank you to those who helped Robert with a vehicle, as it is the biggest need among Veterans..A huge thank you out to Jayne and the Beverly Hills VFW who have been very active in all the work..Thank you for the new dressers. They look great..Thank you to the Elk's Clubs of Citrus County as they have committed to helping..The Redemption Church, Unity Church , and so many others..
We are working on new ways to thank our donors each month..We have started with the plaques which take some time, but adding their logos and helping Veteran's on our new Durango..Well. New to us, has been overwhelming..People give the thumbs up , stop and look it all over..Watching people is the best sign..They all approved and are getting to see who is helping our Veterans..At first my thoughts were that people would mess with them or try and take them..Just the opposite..Lots of respect..Thank God for that..Walmart , Big Lots , Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Depot , and Winn Dixie have really stepped up helping more Veterans each year..But would be awesome to have more local business owners follow suit. There are many more to thank and we will be..But things were moving so quick,we wanted to post an update. We are posting our Adopt Our Veteran's needs list on the website and in the next block..
Thank you all again and God Bless all of you...

Claudio , our three tour combat Veteran, and Purple Heart recipient moved into his own home with Betsy and the kids. Very Thankful to Bealls for helping out and letting him transfer to make it easier. Big Thanks to HUD-VASH and Family Endeavors for making it happen..And to his fellow Veteran's who helped him move. Their biggest need is a vehicle. None of them are looking for a Mercedes.Just a vehicle to get around..As many have found out, it is awesome to hand the keys to very grateful Veterans..And it allows the highest possible tax write off.
Anthony..Our Army Ranger moved out and his fiance is facing a short time dilemma..She starts at WTC in three weeks and her approved Pell Grant does not arrive for four to five weeks..Little Phoenix is now in day care , but she needs $ 300 for her books and scrubs..She is willing to return the funds when she receives the grant. Very proud of them both..Anthony just moved up to a better job with Daly and Zilch, who are working on hiring more Veterans..Thanks again to HUD-VASH and Family Endeavors for the housing..
Citrus County Housing Services has also been a huge help..We would also like to take our hat off to Habitat For Humanity as they are now putting our Veterans into homes..It's awesome..
Immediate needs -
- Bunk beds and mattresses.
- Vehicles for five Veterans
- TV for living room

We will be updating the website for our needs and letting all know about services being offered for all Veterans.Big Thanks to Barber Fred who gives all the Veterans and homeless free haircuts through cards that he provided to us..Big Thanks to all. http://www.helpveteransinneed.com/
So happy for Jason.. His dad and uncle bought him his motorcycle so he could start his new job..After returning to church and much praying, things are looking up for him...
We have many new veterans..All are welcome to stop by and visit..We have a new kid in that has a huge amount of medals on his DD214. More than I have ever seen..He needs a job and help with his driver's license..$ 55. He did some major tours of duty.
