WHY I JOINED NATION’S FINEST

I had been part of a variety of programs serving people experiencing homelessness, but the help provided by Nation’s Finest through the VA's Supportive Services for Veterans Families grant is the best I’ve ever seen at helping people get out of homelessness and never be homeless again

PASSION

The outdoors. I get antsy spending too long indoors. During a long layover at LAX, I actually stepped outside to get some fresh air. At least the sun was somewhat visible through the haze.
