Veteran Suicides a Day in the U.S.
Homeless Veterans in New Jersey
Homeless Veterans in Florida
Veterans Unemployed in the U.S.
About 35% of Veterans have a lifetime incidence of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). Others suffer from TBI (traumatic brain injury) or other physical and mental afflictions as a result of their service. These wartime injuries lead to unemployment, underemployment, financial hardships, legal issues, and more.
This is a real and national disgrace.
No more closing our eyes, it's time to open our hearts!
It is our mission, at Project Help, to change these statistics one Veteran at a time. Join us in this effort as a volunteer, sponsor, donor or ambassador and help those who gave so much for each and every one of us!
World War II Veteran Letters: Jim’s letter from Sulzbach, Germany 1945
Gene Newman, 90, a columnist, blogger and veteran recently joined Project Help as a volunteer working with veterans in need of emotional support. Recently he came across letters written by his brother Jim, a World War II Veteran, while fighting in Europe.
These letters speak from the heart about the day to day life in the trenches. They serve as eye-openers about the bravery of our soldiers and the horror of war.
We hope to share more of these letters as they become available so check back often!

Quotes from Veterans
Please accept my sincere gratitude for your help during our family crisis. Your kindness in our time of need let us know how much you cared. These events have brought us all closer together as a family. I am thankful for the help you extended to my family so I could get back on my feet. I cannot express my gratitude for the kindness you showed to us.
I hope to be able to repay this act of kindness in some way in the near future. I couldn’t have made it without all the help and kindness you provided me with. I made it through my first day on the job, it was tough but I hope to stay in touch and keep up with the jobs available through your network. I really can’t say thank you enough! ~David K
I just wanted to say thank you so much for what you did for us last night with the toys. You have no idea what that means to me and my family.
I really, really appreciate it. ~Kristina
I am very grateful for the generous help provided to me by Project Help. Covering the expense of my car repair, as well as my insurance payment allowed me to stay mobile, attend my VA appointments and to spend time with my sons and other family members, including my 90 year young mom. Again, thank you very much for all of your generous, tireless help and devotion to veterans. May God bless you all and may God bless the USA. ~David Severt
God bless you Sandy and all those people who help. This is the payback that we get and it just brings tears to my eyes. There’s always so much to do but thank God we are saving one Veteran at a time. ~LTC (Ret) Robert F. V., Operation Iraqi Freedom 3
Dear Project Help, Thank you from my veteran husband and me for the way you cared for us, how you communicated so quickly and responded to my family‘s special needs. May God bless all of you. From the bottom of my heart. ~Karen Alejandro
Project Help has been a huge blessing for me, after going through a couple of challenging years of losing everything and having no place to live. When I finally got my apartment, Project Help paid one month’s rent for me. Not only was PH ready to help but Sandy put me in touch with people/organizations ready to help a Veteran in need.
I’m so grateful for PH helping me at a pivotal, intricate time. Especially during the time when many of the larger organizations declined to help. Something that I will never forget about Project Help is that Sandy got to know me personally and she was able to connect me with amazing people who were eager to help me and go far beyond the call of duty. As a Veteran, it is important for me to know that Project Help is supported and able to continue their work, because they truly have a heart to help Veterans. Sandy, Thank you times a million! ~Rita, Army veteran
