The Vets

Learn more about two of the veterans who you are helping!

  • Robert Garcia, 66, United States Army Veteran. Robert came to us here at the Huot House in February of 2020. He was facing many barriers when he entered VOA’s veteran services, but with his commitment and dedication to a better quality of life and hard work, along with case management services, we are now overjoyed to say Robert will be moving forward to a place of his own and into permanent housing. At Volunteers of America, we are committed to bringing our veteran’s “all the way home”. Robert greatly enjoys spending time with friends and his family being his number 1 priority. He enjoys reading and going to the library, museums, and Rock n’ Roll! His dream is to one day see the New England Patriots play! Robert has been a fantastic addition to the Huot House during his time here, always willing to lend a helping hand and a smile that could light up any room!

    Robert states, “ I will tell you, this place has been a blessing for me. This opportunity has saved my life and everyone has helped me so much and been so supportive and kind. I could never express into words how thankful I am.”

  • Timothy Butler, 77, United States Army Veteran, became a resident of the Veteran’s Career House in late 2021. Tim served in the 27th Infantry Division in the Vietnam war. He successfully utilized our program where he had experienced some unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances due to the Covid 19 pandemic. He had purchased his home in the Philippines with his lovely, soon to be wife, Cloudy. Tim has now moved forward into his permanent housing and doing very well! A kind-hearted and funny resident for us at the Veteran’s Career House. Tim states, “if it weren’t for The Veteran’s Career House, I’m not sure what I would have done. The staff made sure I was treated like family and with respect. They really do work hard for every veteran that comes through those doors and I will miss them! I am so thankful to have been a part of the Veteran’s Career House.”
