First of all I want to say this organization is amazing! My husband is a Veteran, We lost our home last April 2016.We were given a 7 day notice to move out,not knowing where we were gonna go. We reached out to numerous organizations and referrals and got little to no help.We were told my husband had to be post 9/11 or injured in order to apply for any assistance from most places.Other places had no funds.We ended up moving into a hotel in June and stayed for three months while we struggled to either pay for our room everyday or eat. My husband works full time but his paycheck wasn't enough to get us through each week as the hotel rates were so high due to tourist season.I even pawned my wedding rings to cover the weekend rate as well as most everything we had of value.The rest of our belongings are in a couples garage and they want it out by the end of the month or it's going on the curb. We had contacted a page and a half of places asking for help in the state we live in. I even called our Congress woman's office. My husband was so stressed from worry as I have chronic pancreatitis as well as several other health issues.Then I found Operation Veterans Outreach on the Internet. I read thei information on the site and I sent them an email.A few days later I spoke with Daniel,the founder. It didn't matter to him if my husband was post 9/11 or injured. He just wanted to help us.See we live in Maine and Daniels organization is in Oklahoma.I was really touched by this, And truely surprised.He moved us out of the hotel we were in and into one his organization works with. Giving us some room to breathe,Hes now working on housing for us. If it had not been for Daniel and Operation Veterans Outreach we would have literally been living on the street.God bless you Daniel!! and everyone in your Organization!! Thank You!! S &J
