Bob Hope Veterans Support Program Success Story

Before getting connected to the Bob Hope Veterans Support Program Tim was struggling in the civilian world. A United States Army Staff Sergeant veteran who served for nearly nine years, Tim found himself living in his car less than 6 months after getting out of the Army. 

"It was nerve-racking not having a plan getting out of the military.  I was trying to succeed as a civilian and completely failing because I didn’t even know the process and how to get things done.   Right out of the military you need guidance, you need something like the Bob Hope Veterans Support Program to help you along the way," said Tim.

After his housing situation was stabilized, Tim’s Employment Specialist helped Tim get a California security card license and secure work as a security guard. He then was able to take steps towards his ultimate career goal of becoming a paramedic.
