Hanford Veteran Finds Success After Reentry

Posted on


We’d like to share a letter written to our staff by the brother of Tony, a Veteran who was released from prison in August with no place to go. The day after his release, he came to our San Joaquin Valley Veterans (SJVV) office in Hanford, CA and was immediately housed by their staff and shortly after, was enrolled into school to obtain his trucking license! In December, he was discharged from the program having exceeded the requirements from earned income! He has since done extremely well for himself since he first stepped through our doors. We are proud so of all his hard work! Congratulations, Tony!

“Hi Stephanie,

I wanted to share these photos with you. I am so proud of my brother and the progress [that] he has accomplished in such a short period of time. I thank God for watching over him, because only God could create all the milestones in his life to date. I thank you too for being a great support mentor and I know he has great respect for you and your staff at WestCare. Your organization’s name says it all. You CARE.”

With great respect,

Steven L.
