Pay It Forward To Our Mothers and Soldiers
Taking care of our veterans makes for a stronger community. Looking out for one another ensures a safer and happier neighborhood. When we all do a little, we can do so much!
In its 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimated that just over 40,000 veterans were homeless on a single night in January of that year. Of those, about 9 percent were women, out of a population of more than 2 million female Veterans. From 2016 to 2017, the number of homeless female Vets increased by 7 percent, compared with 1 percent for their male counterparts.
Our mission is to continue to proactively coordinate future-proof methods of encouragement and empowerment; approach our veterans with compassion and commitment.

When we first introduced you to Sergeant Cecilia Whitfield in February 2016, she was at rock bottom. However, a lot has changed since we last spoke with Cecilia. Now she and her daughter have an apartment to live in, and Cecilia has turned into an entrepreneur. Credit
