I am truly in awe of Alpha Omega. For the past three decades, this organization has faithfully helped more than 10,000 military veterans in the Memphis area recover from physical combat and service-related conditions, including anger management, substance abuse, combat stress, PTSD and various mental health disorders. As a result of the housing, food, clothing, transportation and counseling programs provided by AOVS, many of those who served our country now have the chance to successfully rejoin society and engage in healthy, independent living. Alpha Omega’s mission is more important today than it’s ever been and certainly worthy of being one of our community’s top priorities.

I'm a new board member, and having been on a number of other boards previously, it is this cause that is as heart-warming as critical.
22-23 veterans kill themselves daily, and it is Alpha Omega and their amazing efforts that help hose brave servicemen and women who helped us earn our freedom.

Alpha Omega is an amazing group to work with. They worked with us to give our students an amazing service experience with veterans. They really worked to help our students understand what this agency was able to offer and how we could continue to support this organization. They are kind, comprehensive, and truly amazing.

I am a veteran who has a history of mental health issues. As a part of my recovery I became a mental health advocate and have been for over 10 years. I now work for and fully support the mission of Alpha Omega Veterans Services.

Alpha Omega Veterans Services serves those who have put their lives on the line to protect the rest of us. The men and women who have paid a terrible price, their minds and bodies broken by their service or its aftermath, deserve our total and unconditional support to help them attain any goal they want.

I would not be here if I did not feel passionately about this mission, to help my battle brothers and sisters.

Alpha Omega Veterans Services is the best nonprofit for disabled and displaced veterans! They have helped over 9,000 veterans to date. AOVS extends a hand to veterans during their time of need and rehabilitates them to become functional civilians again. Thank you AOVS for everything you do!!

They do a great job ensuring our Vets are taken care of physically and emotionally. They've done a wonderful job helping them re-adjust to life after the service and the difficulties some of them encounter after their return to civilian life. What could they do better? They need better resources to get their word out and avenues for revenue stream to help more Vets.
