We are currently in great need of volunteers to help out at our Veteran Outreach Center. More and more veterans are coming into the center. They may be homeless, need help with a disability claim, need food or clothing to help their families, or need legal assistance. Although a majority of these vets are not Vietnam era, our founding principle to never abandon other generations of veterans is fundamental to our mission.
Can you help? If you'd like to learn more, please contact us by e-mail or by phone at 503-558-2970.
