Review for Alpha Omega Veterans Services, Inc., Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Alpha Omega Veterans Services was one of the first organizations to serve homeless and disabled veterans in the United States. Born out of a mother's love for her two sons that returned from Vietnam suffering from PTSD and ravaged by the effects of Agent Orange. She sought help for them and found none - thus Alpha Omega Faith Homes began in a humble duplex in South Memphis and served 8 veterans. Today it serves up to 140 veterans daily in its six facilities meeting basic needs, food clothing & shelter; continues with recovery, rehabilitation and education assistance. Success is based on having income and permanent, safe and secure housing. In our 30-years we have assisted over 10,000 veterans with over a 90% success rate. It has been a privilege and honor to serve as the Director for this organization for almost 30 years.
