Veterans Services offices to open in Nashville, Chattanooga, Lexington
Volunteers of America Mid-States will open three new Homeless Veterans Reintegration Project (HVRP) locations this summer in Nashville, Chattanooga and Lexington. We are eager to bring our expertise to new parts of Tennessee and Kentucky and dedicated to bringing our services to more veterans in need and their families.
With nearly 500,000 veterans living in Tennessee and many of them struggling to find jobs and affordable housing, the work Volunteers of America does serving our nation's veterans is more necessary in Nashville and Chattanooga than ever before.
"We are confident that these new programs in Nashville, Chattanooga and Lexington will help meet the needs of veterans in these areas, and we will work diligently to serve them with the same commitment they demonstrated when serving our country," said Volunteers of America President/CEO Jennifer Hancock.
We look forward to engaging and collaborating with other community based organizations and businesses to serve the hundreds of veterans who are literally living on the streets or in their vehicles. We continue to fulfill our founders, Maud and Ballington Booth's pledge to "go wherever we are needed and do whatever comes to hand." Now, 120 years later, we are honored to reach out and support even more veterans.
