Veterans Empowering Veterans

“I’m a work in progress, we all are”, explained formerly homeless Air Force veteran, Robert Morrison. Morrison is now employed and taking computer classes at a local college thanks in large part to the work of Renee and Calvin Elder, founders of Veterans Empowering Veterans.

“Veterans Empowering Veterans is a community-based, non-profit organization that provides case management and counseling, employment training, housing, and benefit assistance to homeless veterans in Fayetteville, [NC] and surrounding areas. We promote and protect the rights of veterans through advocacy, public education, and partnerships with local, state, and national entities.”

When Renee opened the center two years ago, she had eight clients. Today,  over 130 veterans and their families visit Veterans Empowering Veterans for various services including: hot meals, legal services and computer and job training.
