Posted August 20, 2013

On July 12, 2013 Got Your 6 Community Champion American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, Inc., was awarded $2,000,000 in federal funds to assist veterans who are homeless or at-risk for homelessness in San Antonio, Bexar County, and surrounding areas.

Mr. Carlos Martinez, President and CEO of the National Veterans Outreach Program, received notice of the grant, and said “We are very excited about the prospect of serving veterans families in a more holistic approach. Traditionally services have been limited to the veteran only, so we commend the VA for its realization that a family approach is a much better approach in serving today’s veterans”.
