Our local 'Welcome Home' team has been working with the VAMC Northport for the past four years. They have allowed us to contact Veterans in their care that have won the battle against being homeless. We provide these veterans and their families with the basics needed to set up a new home.
We work hand in hand with amazing local veterans support organization: Boots on the Ground, NY to accomplish this mission.
We have also taken two residential hospital mental health units under our wings. We visit monthly and try to make the few hours we spend with them special. We provide special treats (hamburgers, pizza, ice cream sundaes, etc.) and usually a game, bingo being the most popular, with prizes or entertainment. The most valuable gift we bring is our time AND respect!
This month the Soldiers' Angels Veterans Support Team is holding a fundraiser.
