FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 4/28/2020
OPERATION SUPPORT OUR HEROES HELPS VETERAN FAMILIES DURING COVID-19
By providing a safe and supportive living environment to over 700 Veterans and their family members each year, the VIC provides a sense of dignity and respect through stable housing and wrap-around services that lead to long-term housing stability and independence. Our programs also ensure safe and stable housing, something that helps keep homeless Veterans from being exposed to COVID-19, and other communicable diseases. We provide food and hygiene products to ensure healthy eating and good sanitation habits. We continue to provide group therapy with a licensed clinician to help address the stress of living in a COVID-19 society, including weekly check-ins with their multidisciplinary support team who are on site 24 hours daily to ensure they have the right help when needed.
We are working to raise $10,000 to help provide multiple essential items and services during this difficult time of living with COVID-19 including:
Safe & supportive housing for Veteran families while they obtain long-term housing stability
Furniture & Home Essentials that turn a “house” into a “home”
Food and nutritional resources to help reduce the over 26% food insecure in New Mexico
Comprehensive wrap-around services and clinical support in-house that ensure a Veteran’s ability to regain independence is not lost because of trauma or medical disability
Donations are 100% tax deductible, and over 90% of every dollar goes directly into VIC programs that support Veterans and their families. Visit our GoFundMeCharity page and pledge your support TODAY!
