There are milestones that are reached throughout the course of a non-profits’s existence, and Veterans’ Outreach has hit one of its biggest milestones to date.

Lack of employment is one of the major issues facing veterans of all ages. According to PBS, around 9% of veterans are unemployed. That average is higher than the unemployment rate of civilians at 7%. As veterans struggle to find employment, Veterans’ Outreach offers a unique opportunity to employ local vets.
Like most nonprofits, Veterans’ Outreach depends on public support to help meet the needs of its mission. Veterans’ Outreach works tirelessly each day for veterans’ assistance not only in Youngstown, but throughout several parts of the country. We are a veterans’ assistance organization that exists for the sole purpose of assisting. Sometimes, the organizations who do the helping need help themselves. Following are the top 4 ways that you can help VO today; they’re quick, easy and always 100% appreciated.
The BEST way to show your thanks this Fourth of July, to those who fought for your freedoms, is to make a commitment. Volunteer a small piece of your available time!
A volunteer is our greatest, most precious commodity that a charity can boast. They are worth their weight in gold! Here at Veterans’ Outreach, we have plenty of opportunities for volunteering.
