22 Veterans Commit Suicide Daily. Let’s Change That. Together.
Today, we celebrate Veterans Day. As we reflect on the meaning of today, it is important to take time to think of those who have served our country and honor the enormous sacrifices made by the veterans and their families to preserve our freedom. And we could not be more pleased to share the story of Heroes Center with you on such a special and significant day. Did you know right here in High Point there is a center dedicated to improving the lives of millennial student veterans and helping them transition into civilian life? Yes indeed!
We are delighted to bring to you the story of Bob Uber, founder of the Heroes Center, who honors veterans everyday through his organization (we think the world needs more guys like Bob!). The Heroes Center is a non-profit organization with the goal of serving, supporting, and strengthening student veterans and their families. This is an amazing story and one that is especially poignant today. Lucky High Point.
A. We are a nonprofit supporting veterans transitioning back from Combat into civilian life.
A. The Heroes Center was started because we learned that many student veterans attending Guilford Technical Community College were homeless and sleeping in their cars. As a result, the Heroes Center was founded as a way to offer a safe haven for veterans to spend time alone or alongside other veterans.
A. We are focused on helping millennial student veterans, who are actively seeking transition and job skills.
A. We are aware of no other organization using the model we are to help veterans. The Piedmont Triad is proudly the home of over 120,000 veterans and active military duty personnel.
A. We learned about a church campground located in High Point that stood empty for 50 weeks out of a year. High Point has been home to a record number of military and lacked a Veteran Center, so we decided to undergo renovations to provide needed housing for veterans.
A. Understanding city regulations and entering into the renovation world.
A. The High Point community and citizens have continuously supported us through attending benefit concerts, donating supplies and equipment, as well as providing financial and volunteer support.
A. Do your homework, be organized, and maintain your core vision.
A. We continue to need volunteers to cook daily meals and maintain our grounds. We would greatly appreciate if businesses are able to help donate large items, such as kitchen items and furniture.
