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