The Give An Hour Nonprofit
October 20, 2011
I am a Licensed Counselor and the mother of an Iraq veteran who had significant issues "coming home". At that time, GAH had not been created and with limited options, I paid a great deal to get the care my son needed. As a result of our own journey, we created Veterans' Families United as a user friendly and compassionate resource to help veterans and families navigate the system and to empower them with choices. GAH has been at the top of my list for referrals since that time. Consistently, they extend timely and much needed resources for vets and families, many of whom are in remote areas and/or have few options for support. In my opinion, they are one of the most pure in their intentions of serving those who have served our country and they embody the essence of community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Consistent and timely and compassionate feedback and support and willingness to explore all options to support our service members, vets and families.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
NOTHING...they are totally "in tune" with the DIRECT needs and willing to do all they can to meet those needs.
What is unique about this organization?
The genuine spirit of "giving back" to those who have served.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Professional with expertise in this field & I am a Give an Hour provider. I offer the GAH information at Yellow Ribbon Events. I suggest GAH to my colleagues and in my presentations to professional organizations as a way of "serving" those who have served.
