A quick recap for June, we were able to house four homeless veterans and housed nine additional vets in the hotel. We still have 16 in the Operation 6 program. Thanks to our staff for all their hard work. Thanks to all the resources that we work with!
Going into July I want to recognize the millions of those that have served and sacrificed to keep alive and make the dreams be realized of 56 daring and brave souls that signed the Declaration of Independence, They are called Veterans!
Thanks to those currently standing post and keeping our liberty and freedom active. They are called our Armed Forces!

I am asking you to consider helping our veterans in need by referring them to agencies or resources that can help in getting to the bottom of any issues the vet may have. If they are in crisis, call 988 Option#1, If they are looking for resources, please have them call the good people at BeConnected. 866-429-8387. They have an extensive network to reach out to. AZ 211 is also a good resource. By referring them to the people that know how to give a “Hand up” you may be preventing someone from falling out of society and saving a vet and family members.
What we do takes money, volunteers, resources, community support and a little bit of magic.
If you would like to pitch in, please go to javc.org/donations-general-via-credit-card/
Enjoy your holiday!
That’s all for now!
