November 2017 Edition

October was marked by a series of wonderful visits from families and organizations that cooked and served meals, and hosted Job Prep, Life Skills and other Workshops for our residents. In addition, our Service Center offerings included a number of informative sessions for both residents and visiting Veterans.      

The month ahead is being viewed with a great deal of excitement as Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and our annual  Homes for the Brave Mini-Golf Tournament all spice up the November calendar. We hope you enjoy reading about all the events and loyal supporters featured in this edition of  The Perimeter!
