DETAILS

In the veterans arm alone, they’ve opened 16-hundred cases so far this year.

“There are a lot of veterans that have barriers to employment, housing, and self-sufficiency really.”

The NJP gives them a voice.

“And that’s a big deal for a lot of our cases; the clients just really want to be heard.”

Matt accepted some responsibility and so did the VA, a victory in his eyes. Now he’s found a new way to serve… by tracking down other vets in need.
