Rotary Seeks Funds for Veterans
A Warm Bed, a Clean Sheet, a Cozy Blanket and a Freshly Brewed
Cup of Coffee…do you take this items for granted?
If you were once a homeless Veteran the answer would be “NO”
“Welcome Home Wish List” project was established to help honorably discharged Veterans, now homeless, who had fallen on hard times due to mental illness, drug addiction, severe depression, PTSD, and poverty. These Veterans who have now graduated from “Hope for Veterans” program at Lyons, VA in Basking Ridge NJ, start their way back to once again becoming a productive member of society in their community.
While at Lyons, VA (a two year traditional housing program) they are provided safe shelter, support, counseling, and assistance with future employment services. The goal of the “Hope for Veterans” program is to get homeless Veterans off the streets, transition them back to civilian life and help them to become proud and productive members of society once again.
