I just recently started to volunteer with this organization with fundraising and I found it to be very concerned with disabled vets that need to find the right housing or modify their current housing to meet their needs.

You read in the news everyday about our Soldiers needing assistance, jobs, claims filed acted on, suicides, homelessness and so forth...The DVCH is an organization that can step in on a moments notice and provide immediate assistance in food, money for electricity or house payment, or temproary lodging. They can also provide assistance in completing forms and applicaitons for housing renovations that would provide adequate constrction for a disabled veteran, or get appropriate equipment needed such as wheelchairs, and other necessities of life to be able to be a little more independent by cutting through the red tape of government paperwork and go straight to the Veteran's hopspitals for that equipment. No Soldier should have to wait months and years for such simple things in life to be able to be independent and this organization does those things. The founder; John Lewandoski is disabled himself and understands what they are going through because he himself went through the same issues, but because of his trials and tribulations, he can help other disabled veterans cut through some of the red tape a little faster and get on with their lives. I enjoy working with John and he is a very untiring, dedicated, 24/7 individual for the veterans and never quits even when his own disabilities get in the way as he himself is a 100% disabled veterans and truely understands what others are going through and is relentless in his efforts.

The Great!

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

I've personally experienced the results by the attention of the public in the events this organization puts on for the veterans in the local area and those that come from afar, and those that keep coming back for other events. In talking personally to veterans they are very appricative of the people that show up at events because it shows they care for all that veterans have done and they need to know that people care.

Ways to make it better...

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

like to see more community support by way of monetary support. That is a very difficult thing to do right now in these economic times. Would also liek to see more volunteerism as well, again, families are striving hard to keep their own lives together and it can be difficult balancing work and free time and how it is utilized.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

To really have the greater community behind our events and to participate in some way to make it more rewarding for our veterans.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

meeting new people and a new network of friends and knowing tht people really do care about our veterans.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Rewarding becasue in my job tht i recently retired with 36 years of service from tht also included my active duty time in the Army, i have work with Soldiers my whole life and this vounteer work can keep that still very close to me; working with Soldiers/Veterans because I understand their language, their concerns, the government system, some of what they have ben through on the battlefield and their needs to help them survive.
