  • HomeAid and U.S.VETS Bring New Veteran Housing to Inland Empire

    In partnership with HomeAid Inland Empire (HAIE), U.S.VETS recently dedicated five newly-renovated apartments that will provide temporary housing for homeless veterans at the U.S.VETS – Inland Empire facility at March ARB in Riverside, California. “U.S.VETS is thankful for the outstanding work that has been done by HomeAid in the past few months to help us provide a comfortable and safe place for the veteran clients we serve at this facility, and for the opportunity they provided to have five of the resident veterans here involved with doing some of the renovation work,” says President & CEO Stephen Peck. “We are looking forward to continuing to work with HomeAid Inland Empire in the months ahead to make additional improvements to the facility,” he added. For Army veteran James Andrews, moving into one of the new apartments marks a new chapter in his life. James found himself homeless, living in his truck and bouncing from place to place, after a series of devastating setbacks. The loss of his business in the recession, his mother’s death from cancer, and a diagnosis of Ménières disease made it difficult for James to stay stable. He came to U.S.VETS last summer, and has been working hard to get back on his feet ever since. With the availability of these new apartments, James is finally able to feel back in control. “It’s kind of weird to be in my own place again,” he says. “It’s been such a long time.” To read more about James, check out […]

  • Meet a Veteran: Robert

    This story was originally featured in The Prescott Daily Courier on January 26, 2015. Robert Schaffer served in the U.S. Marine Corps for 21 years, from 1976 to 1997. Working in tech support, he never made it to the front lines of any military action – but he was on U.S. Embassy security duty in Tel Aviv Israel and Katmandu, Nepal. One of the highlights of his military career was being in Tel Aviv for the Israeli-Arab peace summit in ’79. He got to meet President Jimmy Carter’s family, and chatted with Carter’s mother, Lillian. “That was pretty impressive to me,” Schaffer said. On a separate occasion, he met Farrah Fawcett-Majors. She’d come to Tel Aviv for a lookalike contest, sporting her signature feathered mane, which women worldwide wanted to emulate at the time. “Everyone was. That was the big hairstyle,” he said. After leaving the Marines, Schaffer did tech support for GTE in Southern California and worked as a computer network technician in Ventura County. In 2011, he moved to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim, where he did computer network support for Xanterra. He also struggled with alcoholism. In September 2013, Schaffer moved to Prescott and, after completing a substance abuse program at the VA, entered the U.S.VETS program. U.S.VETS – Prescott, which celebrated 12 years in the community earlier this month, provides transitional and permanent housing for homeless and at-risk veterans, said Matthew Phillips, U.S.VETS development and activities coordinator. On any given night, the program houses 75 veterans […]

  • IN THE NEWS: “Old Friends” with Darryl Vincent

    Hawaii’s popular newspaper, the Midweek, recently featured COO Darryl Vincent in their “Old Friends” column, which gives its readers a chance to catch up on people who have been featured on the cover in the past. Back in 2006, Midweek printed a story about U.S.VETS, and interviewed Darryl, who at the time served as Vice President of Programs, supervising the organization’s Executive Directors at all U.S.VETS locations in six different states.  Now as Chief Operating Officer, Darryl continues his philosophy of utilizing strong community collaboration to end homelessness. “Let’s all work together to make sure veterans have a place to go before they even need a homeless program,” he says.
