For many years, the American people have worked tirelessly to identify ways to welcome the constant flow of our Soldiers home. Southern Crescent Veteran Services Inc. has developed a personal approach to meeting our warrior's needs upon their return. We have often found Veterans homeless, jobless, or fighting to understand where they fit in the society that they once called home. At SCVS, every Veteran can be assured that our team will go to the end of the earth, to ensure your best transition back home. Welcome Home Warriors! - SFC (Ret) Danny Ellyson | Board Member

I would like to say a heart-felt "Thank You" to MSgt Baisden with the Southern Crescent Veteran Services organization, for her acts of kindness. She has done a tremendous job and are always willing to lend a helping hand. The world needs more people like her, that genuinely care about others and are willing to assist them in their time of need. She worked very hard in helping my family and I get our electric bill paid, that was due to be disconnected due to my losing my job. She is also assisting me with trying to secure another job. I salute her and pray God's blessings upon her and her family.

As the founder of another non-profit (Bettie Brand Mothers' Empowerment Fund), I can say we have had the honor and pleasure of supporting an outstanding veteran who oversees the Southern Crescent Veteran Services--Master Sergeant (Ret.) Baisden. Time and again she has demonstrated her immense talents and energy in helping other veterans from this fine group by taking them to doctor appointments (in a car donated by us) and healing fishing trips, as well as organizing various fund raising events for veterans and their children. As we have followed Ms. Baisden's success, so have we been impressed with the organization for which she works. The Southern Crescent Veteran Services does great work with and for veterans. Bravo.

Master Sergeant (Ret) Baisden is the best at providing valuable information that gets results, not frustration \uD83D\uDC4F and dead end leads. If I had million dollars \uD83D\uDCB5 I would donate $200,000 to them to continue their mission of taking care \u2764 all Veterans.

I have been past due on my Ga power bill due to lack of work because of Covid-19 . I reached out to Southern Crescent Veteran Services Inc and they stepped in to help without hesitation. I reached out to them and within a week they paid my bill in full to help me avoid disconnection and keep my power on during hard times. What a amazing company that helps veterans in times of need. I appreciate Southern Crescent Veteran Services Inc for all their services and what they stand for. Thank you, I am so grateful.

Southern Crescent is the FIRST group to say what they mean and mean what they say. They are not only active with local schools, but they are compassionate, helpful, and provides exceptional resources for Veterans. As a Vet, I've finally found a place to reach out to should I need the assistance, in the meantime I will do what I can to support the group and serve as a volunteer.

Thank you SCVS for ALL that you do! You are appreciated!!!

Recently my husband had 3 strokes, was hospitalized for 3 weeks and upon his return home, I became his caregiver. Unbeknownst to me was how to secure any help, assistance, and support to give him all of the best care he could get. Thank God for Southern Crescent Veteran Services, Inc.! They have been pivotal in connecting me/us to those in positions to further help us. My questions, concerns, and uncertainties were answered and calmly resolved through their relentless efforts. This group of dedicated individuals has been a blessing to and for us.
Thank you for all that you have been to me and my husband...we are thoroughly grateful.

As a Marine Corps veteran and someone who has worked with many veteran organizations, I have to put Southern Crescent Veteran Services up there with the best organizations around. Master Sgt. Baisden works tirelessly to ensure that veterans in our community are represented and the organization continuously has innovative programs that benefit our fellow service men and women.

When my 90 year old father who is a Korean War Veteran had a bad fall several months ago he needed a mobilized wheel chair to get around, Master Sergeant (Ret) Baisden and Southern Crescent Veterans Services Inc found one for him, and delivered it to my home all FREE of charge.

Retired MSgt Baisden and this organization were a true blessing to my family during a very difficult time. When facing homelessness, she stepped in and got into contact with numerous support systems. She even helped get donations together for us at the 11th hour. She continues to reach out to us and send us every new possibility that might help us. We are and will remain grateful for all that was done on our behalf.

It's an exceptional program and more vets should sign up and realize not only all the activities that go on throughout the year, but also opportunities exist to donate time in and around the events to help other vets out when needed.
