I was invited to participate several times before I went through this wonderful program we call Vets Journey Home. After going through as a participant and being helped to dump 30+ years of guilt and total silence and keeping everything buried deep inside, I got to tell some other Vets and some very caring staff members my story. It was a wonderful journey and the GREATEST welcome home I have ever recieved. Actually it was the FIRST welcome home I ever recieved.
What a wonderful program staffed totally by Volunteers a lot of whom are Veterans themselves and have been through the program as a participant. They now want to share in this great work as a volunteer staff member to help bring any other Veteran of any branch of service and from any war or combat theatre give them all a HEALTHY, HAPPIER and more steady footing for their new life. It also gives the Veterans family a new, more loving, sharing start.
I cannot count all the blessings I got by going through the program and I now volunteer to staff any VJH home weekend that comes up. It is always FREE for all vets. We feel that they have already paid their price!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The actual change you can see in the people over a short weekend. Changes in attitude, facial expressions, demeanor and the vocal expressions from the graduates as well as the follow up comments from their families.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
All caring, loving, giving people who offer their time for free as a volunteer because they have witnessed the change themselves.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Change the world!!!
