Serving those who Served
"Volunteers of America gave me a second chance at normal," said Jamal. "Food, shelter and someone who actually cares about me." You can help veterans like Jamal who need some help getting back to "normal." Volunteers of America has built a Veteran Service Center in Denver. This building is a one-stop for Veterans to get access to the service they need. You can help.
