They very generously donate their community room to us quarterly to host our events.Come early if you like, they will assign a job to you. Dinner will be available at no cost, including dessert and coffee. A door prize will be up for grabs and 50/50 will be held. There is absolutely no cost to attend, but RSVP is required and that can be done online at projecthelp.networkforgood.com/events/2636Sandy Mitchell and other board members will talk about the mission of Project Help and “Heroes 4 Heroes”, what they’ve accomplished so far and their plans for 2018. “Project Help is a dynamic, young 501c3 charity with the welfare of our veterans as our only cause.” said Mitchell, founder and executive director. You will be given the firsthand look at the “Heroes 4 Heroes” program with the ability to become a charter member if you so choose.The purpose of the Open House in addition to community building and networking is to shed light on the issues suffered by veterans and their families. Project Help has been addressing these issues stemming from poverty, homelessness, disabilities in many forms including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury, joblessness, underemployment, trouble navigating the Veterans Administration, legal and a host of other issues from transition to end of life.Many of their issues are financial and this year, Project Help is in a position to help financially to a limited degree. By year end, they hope to be fully funded. “Each time we take money out of the Project Help Hardship Fund for a veteran, we have to go out and raise that money again,” Mitchell said. The money given is a grant and doesn’t have to be repaid. “Knowing what we now know, and realizing that this is just a patch, our focus in 2018 is in meaningful jobs and housing, solving those two things will solve most everything else,” she said.To learn more about Project Help, visit the website at www.ProjectHelp.US and like the Facebook page ProjectHelpUS.
