Serving Veterans

Every day 22 veterans are lost to suicide.  The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that roughly 13% of the overall U.S. homeless population are veterans, with 50% experiencing severe mental illness and 75% struggling with substance abuse. A survey conducted across 8 southwest Alabama counties confirms these estimates. Veterans have served us.  It is our turn to serve them.
