This organization does "fantastical" things that are nothing but positive. If something positive happens to me...something positive will probably happen to someone else. Positive breeds in the positive. It's a good start to a positive future.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the method in which they interface with their residents - honorably discharged veterans.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not even an issue as I cannot cite anyway it could be improved. These are the best people I have ever met. They serve some of the most difficult people within our community.

I am proud to have honorably served our Country for 11 years. I have accomplished a few things in my life, but I believe I am nowhere near finished yet. I had no idea that my body would feel they way it started to feel about five years ago from all the abuse I put it through as a younger man. I was young and aggressive…I loved the physical challenges of being an ARMY RANGER. I never thought I would also own a business for over a decade either. But most of ALL, I never thought I would find myself homeless. I’m a not going to tell you a sob story! I want to convey to anyone who reads this that this is about hope!

I learned of Liberty Manor for Veterans from my church years before I came to them for help. Members from my church have held cookouts for the Veterans at Liberty Manor and found it fulfilling to do so…the church members were actually bragging about it. When I found myself in a homeless state, I did my best to keep my wits about me and find a solution. I was able to recall my friend’s pleasant experience at Liberty Manor. Quite frankly all it took was for me to make one simple phone call!

After speaking to Connie Blaney and Jeff Luddeke, the wheels of hope went into full gear. As fast as I was homeless, ever faster I had a new home where I could think about what got me into this position in the first place. I was provided everything I needed. I found myself in a safe home with a warm bed, all the food I could cook and eat, cable TV, washer and dryer and most of all, fellow Veterans Brothers that Ms. Blaney had rescued as well.

Liberty Manor’s love for Veterans in no way stopped there. I was given personal attention and direction on negotiating all the obstacles that Veterans encounter on a daily basis with the Veterans Administration. The abundance of experience and knowledge provided by Ms. Blaney and her staff as well as their eagerness to aid me just because of the mere fact I served our country is what kept me from literally finding myself in a cardboard box somewhere!

When I really thought hard about things, I had to ask myself the question…”how does Connie Blaney and her staff at Liberty Manor, perform these benevolent acts of random kindness on a daily basis for such an extended period of time”? THANK YOU CONNIE AND LIBERTY MANOR!!!!

I was living at the womens program, Afena House and moved here due to a recommended by a fellow veteran named Tony who was a former resident. I was introduced to Jeff and Connie while a BBQ was going on at Liberty Manor. They took me in and made me feel at home.

I was a homeless veteran and asked a church for help, they called Liberty Manor, and they picked me up within half an hour. They were nso kind and welcoming. I now have a chance to get my life back. I can now receive rent assistance as well. Today, a veterans group brought loads of food and other things for us.

I was a former resident of Liberty Manor for Veterans, Inc.

I was standing in line at the Salvation Army shelter when Connie Blaney learned that I was an honorably discharged veteran and walked up to me, told me about Liberty Manor. I left with her that day and moved into Liberty Manor for Veterans - thank God!

I arrived at Liberty Manor from a program called New Beginnings. I was referred to Liberty Manor by Leroy Milliage with Hillsborough County Health and Social Services. When I first saw Liberty Manor, I was hooked! We are well fed and the holidasys seem much more like Christmas! I'm well pleased - thanks.

As a result of the staff and other residents, I feel better aboiut myself.

I was recently homeless and seeking help when Hillsborough County Homeless Recovery referrred me to Liberty Manor for Veterans. I met Connie Blaney who offered me a place to stay in a matter of hours. I enjoy the environment between staff and residents because everyone is pretty close. Staff have been extremely helpful and understanding.

I came to Liberty Manor for Veterans and they found employment for me in five days! They offered me shelter, food and clothing. They really seem to care for veterans when other organizations just talk about helping us. We attended a party to honor veterans the second day I was there. I havent felt so welcome in years.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the fact they helped me with all services in a short time - only five days all of my needs have been met.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change anything. What they are doing is working successfully.
