Review for Military Transition Services, Anderson, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Too many veteran organizations are worried about how much money they can get to help themselves with salaries and perks. This organization is 100% volunteer and uses all of the funds from its fundraisers to help veterans. We have recently helped a female veterans who was living in her car while trying to go back to college to get her A+ certification to get her own apartment and completely furnish it, and help cover utilities, as well as provide a computer to use for school. We helped another one that was being evicted to have a roof over their head and to help them obtain HUD housing, plus the veterans daughter was able to obtain employment using our job services locator.
We are also helping others with resume' writings by professionals, and job placement, such as the male vet who lived in a house with no utilities/heat to obtain a job a $40K job. Other vets who are in sheltered housing are using our services to get back on their feet.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more ways to raise funds so that all of the veterans who come to us can be able to get assistance.
