Making A Difference Together

"I didn't have much to feel thankful for this year. Ever since my medical discharge, I have felt hopeless...my family and I would like to thank you and the Caritas Veterans Outreach Program for this blessing and help in hard times...people and services like the one you work for are growing rare. From my family to yours, thank you so much for not letting us fall between the cracks."
