GSSCAR

Veterans Empowerment Organization

The GSSCAR 2018-2019 State Project this year is "Hearts and Hands helping Heroes" by raising funds to support the local Veterans Empowerment Organization, located in Atlanta, Georgia. The VEO helps heroes everyday by getting homeless veterans off the streets and helping them reclaim their identity. The VEO also assists them in becoming self sufficient through counseling and workforce development, they receive job placement assistance and get them back into the workforce. For those veterans that are not able to work there is subsidized housing that they can afford until they need to move on to assisted living. The current campus provides housing for 106 single male veterans and 42 female veterans with families, this year’s project will help raise funds for a new building that includes a mess hall, laundry facility, and 10 additional rooms for housing. We are very proud to be a part of this project and support the homeless veterans in Georgia.
