Review for Veterans Inc., Worcester, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was being evicted due to upgrades in apartments. (cheaper than placing us in hotel). I am not well and have zero money to move with. I have been here ten (10) years and have a lot of accumulated things along with furniture. I had NO idea of what to do, or where to go. I had just gotten a letter for an emergency heart exam, and just recently was told my internal organs were calcifying (hardening). I was kind of sick about the whole ordeal. No mercy from greedy real estate company. I was looking at life on the street for a long term. I would not have made it very long. I have several other physical probs (agent orange).
Even now I have to fight back the urge to shed a tear over what seemed at the time HOPELESS.
About the time i was being dragged into court for refusing to move, Beth Barbra from Veterans Inc came into my life. She turned out to be heaven sent.
My situation was so compounded with problems of every kind imaginable I saw no way out, but Beth did. She took control of my shattered situation and somehow began to piece it back into a hopeful condition. I went from thinking I had come to my end, to today, when Beth called and told me my new apartment had been approved and I once again had a home.
I am to meet her tomorrow for paperwork and to arrange moving and even to meet with a gentleman who stores used furniture for vets to freely take. Beth set me up with my VSO in my city, and also with the new one where I am moving to. She helped me with everything I needed, including (and most importantly) GIVING ME HOPE. She is the finest person I have met in many years, and the most thorough I think I know.
I am here today and healthier than I had expected because of Veterans Inc, and BETH Barbra.
I had not felt so totally hopeless in over 40 years before contacting this organization.
They have hooked me up with other organizations I did not even know existed.
Through Veterans Inc, I have found a place to live, gotten health care I DESPERATELY needed, and been put on a Veterans program that allows me a bit more money.
There is even a brand new bed coming my way thanks to Veterans Inc. My life has gone from dismal and hopeless, to a bright and expectant future. I will allows remember Beth and Veterans inc. They have a place at my table any time. Thank you for being there and thank you for caring. (My new place is bigger, newer, nicer, and less expensive. Thanks Beth).
{What I have written is not nearly so bad as my situation was, and the help I received from this organization is not nearly explained well enough.

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