President Obama and the First Lady are Determined to Prevent Homlessness Amongst Veterans

On 05/29/2012

Recently Huffington Post blogged about how President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama were awarded for the second time the Jerald Washington Memorial Founders’ Award. This award is only given to those dedicated to ending homelessness for veterans. Our president and first lady have been working hard on a project called “Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness”. This project is hoping to end chronic homelessness amongst our veterans by the year 2015.

Here at Harbor Homes, we have a similar mission.When a local homeless veteran was found dead on the banks of the Nashua River staff at Harbor Homes took it upon themselves to find out how they could better serve the men and women who fought for our country. In 2003 Harbor Homes founded a program called the Veterans FIRST.

The Veterans FIRST program has successfully provided affordable, supportive housing for our local homeless veterans and their families. This program provides our vets with access to employment and training, the Harbor Homes’  Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, which helps veterans gain and maintain employment. We also provide out veterans with transportation, case management, access to substance abuse disorder treatment and mental health care, and ancillary primary and preventive healthcare through Harbor Homes’ Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center.

We hope that we can provide our local veterans and their families the very  best chance to become successful, independent members of our community and end their homelessness, but we need your support. If you or a loved one is a homeless veteran, Harbor Homes can help. For more information or to DONATE NOW, call 603-882-3616.

  1. I would like to say that I am where I am today due to VA programs. I would also like to say that I do what I do bescuae I am a Veteran and I have a strong belief in giving back to our Nation and to our Veterans who serve it. I have worked in corporate positions, but they do not provide a sense of purpose for me. Since I have been at the VA, I have felt like I am contributing and doing what I can and should to award the benefits that the great men and women that have served our country have earned through their duty and committment to our country. Thank you Veterans, for all that you have done and for what you will do.
