  • Tune In to U.S.VETS

    Chris Cano and his panel have created a new radio show called The Veterans Movement which focuses on endeavors that relate to enhancing the lives of veterans.  This radio show gave Darryl Vincent, COO, and Dr. Kim Cook, Executive Director for U.S.VETS – Barbers Point, the opportunity to speak about the mission of our program and to highlight our services and expansion. They were both honored to represent U.S.VETS on the Rick Hamada show, recording in the Clear Channel studios. The radio show was hosted by Hawai’i’s very own radio personality, Rick Hamada, and was aired on Saturday March 15, 2014. Darryl and Kim had the chance to provide insight in to the problem of homelessness amongst the veteran population and allowed them to speak about how we have expanded into homeless prevention through SSVF, Supportive Services to Veterans Families. SSVF offers temporary assistance to at-risk, low-income families in an effort to keep them from becoming homeless or to intervene rapidly once a veteran becomes homeless. On Wednesday, March 19th, Dr. Kim Cook had another opportunity to talk about the work of U.S.VETS when she was invited by Veterans United Foundation to be interviewed by local TV personality, Mrs. Bernadette Baraquio – Hamada, on the LIVING LOCAL with the Baraquios show. Celebrating nearly 10 years and more than 200 episodes of broadcast excellence, LIVING LOCAL’s mission is to entertain, educate, inform and inspire through visual, meaningful and compelling stories. It was with gratitude that Dr. Cook discussed the impact that Veterans […]

  • Thank You to COO Darryl Vincent for 10 Years of Service

    Darryl Vincent, Chief Operating Officer for U.S.VETS, recently reached a milestone 10 years of service. U.S.VETS – Barber’s Point Executive Director, Dr. Kim Cook and U.S.VETS – Waianae Executive Director, Gladys Peraro successfully pulled off a surprise party for Darryl in January to celebrate a decade of achievement for one of our fearless leaders. Family, friends, and staff – including a surprise visit by Darryl’s mentor, President & CEO Steve Peck – gathered in Waikiki to congratulate Darryl and thank him for his hard work. Over the last 10 years that Darryl has been a part of U.S.VETS, the organization has undergone some drastic changes. New sites have opened, new programs have been established – all with the singular goal of helping homeless veterans get off the street. Darryl’s leadership has made so much of U.S.VETS work possible. Even though his work for U.S.VETS kept him busy, Darryl also found the time to pursue his graduate degree. His recent graduation was just one more reason to celebrate. Congratulations on your success, Darryl! We are all so proud of you.

  • 10th Anniversary Celebration at U.S.VETS – Barbers Point

    On Friday, December 6th, U.S.VETS – Barber’s Point had their 10th Anniversary celebration on site. It was truly a momentous evening for community supporters, veterans in the program, and family and friends to come together and celebrate the accomplishments of the site and to those veterans who have successfully transitioned out of the program. The evening started with live music played by veterans in the VIP (Veterans-in-Progress) program, the presentation of colors by the Hawaii Youth Challenge Academy, and an a capella performance of The National Anthem. The highlight of the evening was guest speaker and COO, Darryl Vincent, who is credited with starting the Barbers Point site, and who has been a support for the site every step of the way these past 10 years. He highlighted the newest U.S.VETS program that will be soon opening in Washington D.C. by saying, “I grew up ten minutes away from the U.S.VETS location,” he said. “I went to high school there. It’s very meaningful to me to be able to bring services to veterans in the neighborhood where I grew up, to build a program in a community which I am very close to. It’s all come full circle for me.” A special recognition was then given to Darryl and Executive Director, Dr. Kim Cook from Mark Takai, representing The House of Representatives of the Twenty- Seventh Legislature of the State of Hawaii, who on their behalf congratulated the UNITED STATES VETERANS INITATIVE – Barber’s Point on the occasion of the […]
